Carbon Disclosure Project, ICLEI partner to help US cities report local climate actions, emissions
Date:8/10/2008

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability are joining forces with some of the United States' largest cities to help them voluntarily report their greenhouse gas emissions and other climate change-relevant data.

This project marks a significant step in advancing public disclosure and reporting on climate change related issues. Cities will be able to use the project to learn from peers on climate change management and the project will shed light on the level of awareness and preparedness of the cities on this issue. It will also demonstrate to companies, investors and the general public how individual cities are dealing with the risks and opportunities climate change presents.

Under the new CDP Cities program, at least 30 urban centers, including New York, Las Vegas, Denver, West Palm Beach, St. Paul and New Orleans, will use ICLEI's Local Government Operations Protocol and software tools to assess their greenhouse gas emissions profile and then will disclose this inventory data to the CDP online reporting. Twenty-one cities were announced today, with at least nine others expected to take part in the pilot project.

Each city will assemble comparable carbon emission data within their jurisdiction's operations -- for instance, fire department, ambulance and police services, municipal buildings, waste transport and other services the cities provide or activities over which they exercise budgetary control. They will follow CDP systems to assess and disclose climate change-related risks and opportunities relating to the whole city. Cities will use the Local Government Operations Protocol, coauthored by ICLEI and the California Climate Action Registry, with input from expert stakeholders across the United States, which details the policy framework, calculation methodologies, and reporting guidance for quantifying GHG emissions from local government operations. <
