In a 24-month project, the Stuttgart Region and 14 other european metropolitan regions are aiming to devise strategies for achieving an 80% reduction of greenhouse gases emissions by the year 2050. Led by the Coordinator, the Metropolitan Region of Hamburg, and with scientific monitoring provided by the University of Manchester, we used the GRIP model – the Greenhouse gas Regional Inventory Protocol - for the CO2 Inventory. GRIP is recommended by the European Commission as an efficient tool in the context of the Covenant of Mayors.
Our Project named EUCO2 80/50 is a three-step mitigation project for Metropolitan Areas. After the production of regional greenhouse gas inventories, political and economic stakeholders come together in scenario/strategy workshops in order to find a consensual long term CO2 reduction strategy. Results will be disseminated to other metropolitan areas.
