  • New greenhouse gas accounting tool will help China’s cities pursue low-carbon development

    Low-carbon development has become the core theme of China’s urbanization. In fact, it’s one of the country’s key strategies to achieve its target of reducing carbon intensity by 40-45 percent by 2020. China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) ...

  • Understanding GHG verification requirements

    Many organizations are required to report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the U.S. EPA mandated by the Mandatory Reporting Rule (MRR). Effective December 29, 2009, large sources and suppliers in the United States will begin collecting data on January 1, 2010 and report GHG emissions to EPA by March 31, 2011. Similar to the EPA MRR, many states also have mandatory reporting requirements. The map ...

  • Enterprise Carbon Accounting: The quest for unprecedented transparency

    Enterprise carbon accounting (ECA) is an essential requirement for companies and will likely become necessary due to government legislation. No longer is it permissible for a company to look within its borders, but it must look at its overall environmental responsibilities and accurately gauge and measure carbon production and emission caused by its very existence. Financial data must be directly ...

  • GHG quantification reporting and lifecycle assessment: does one size fit all?

    Corporate and government entities have been developing and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emission inventories, some for well over a decade. The basis for developing these inventories has evolved from voluntary mechanisms (e.g., sustainability reports; registries like the DOE 1605(b) or The Climate Registry) to regulatory requirements (e.g., EU Emissions Trading Scheme, US EPA Mandatory Reporting ...

  • An approach for road air emissions calculation: Portuguese case-study

    A methodology to estimate road transportation emissions was developed with the main objective of improving emission estimates for those pollutants that are most dependent on the vehicle class and abatement technology. Emissions were estimated with a detailed level of disaggregation allowing the evaluation of measures aiming key source groups rather than road traffic in general. Those measures ...

  • Development and regional application of a photochemical oxidant dispersion/reactivity model

    In this paper we use the urban airshed model IV, simultaneously including the dispersion and the tropospheric chemistry as described in version IV of the carbon bond (CB-IV). The modelling area covers northern France and a part of Belgium, with a total surface area of 15 000 km2. The wind field is calculated using the Meteo France ALADIN code and temperature vertical profiles from radiosoundings. ...

  • 33 cities test new framework for community-scale greenhouse gas inventories

    A growing number of countries and companies now measure and manage their emissions through greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories. Cities, however, lack a common framework for tracking their own emissions—until now. Thirty-three cities and communities from around the world started pilot testing the Global Protocol ...

  • Inventory of US greenhouse gas emissions and sinks: 1990 – 2006

    An emissions inventory that identifies and quantifies a country's primary anthropogenic sources and sinks of greenhouse gases is essential for addressing climate change. This inventory adheres to both 1) a comprehensive and detailed set of methodologies for estimating sources and sinks of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, and 2) a common and consistent mechanism that enables Parties to the United ...

  • European Union CO2 emissions: different accounting perspectives

    The aim of this technical report is to explain to a wider audience the concepts and methodologies behind different air emission accounting perspectives and the resulting emissions data at the EU level. In brief, there are three of these different accounting perspectives: territorial, production and consumption. Three perspectives on air emissions The territorial ...
