ICLEI Case Study 126 - Greenhouse gas emissions inventory: First experiences, Montevideo, Uruguay
A greenhouse gas inventory serves as a tool to quantify and weigh greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
The Municipality of Montevideo (Intendencia de Montevideo, IM) prepared and presented the results
of their first greenhouse gas emissions inventory in June 2010. The inventory, for example, revealed
that two-thirds of the city’s emissions stem from the burning of fossil fuels. The inventory enables the
city’s Climate Change Work group to propose policies that promote a low-carbon economy and more
efficient use of energy.
