LAKs Project: Local Government GHG Emissions Inventory Manual
This Manual provides guidance for the LAKs LG GHG Emissions Inventory Tool which was developed to assist local government staff to produce GHG inventories. Use this Tool and manual to prepare your Municipality Operations emissions inventory, and your Community Inventory. These inventories will provide your municipality with valuable information to help develop a strategic approach to reducing GHG emissions. These inventories will help identify key priority areas and activities and provide a reference from which you can measure achievements as your emissions reduction measures are implemented. The LAKs inventory tool, and this manual, have been developed for use by municipalities in Italy, Poland and Spain. The tool and manual are based on GHG accounting principles included in the International Local Government GHG Emissions Analysis Protocol. (ICLEI's Cities for Climate Protection Campaign also offers a version of this tool that includes reporting for the Covenant of Mayors.)
