Our progress towards decarbonization

 

GHG Emissions

North Star

How we want to achieve this – our roadmap

  • Quantify and report all GHG emissions from sources located within the city/region boundary 
  • Have a recent city/region-wide GHG emissions inventory or undertake it within the next two years  
  • Disclose a breakdown of GHG emissions figures (direct and/or indirect) by sector, including Industrial processes and product use (IPPU) and Agriculture, Forestry and other land use (AFOLU)
  • Have a published city/region plan that addresses climate change mitigatio
