Description

The City monitors greenhouse gas emissions to track Edmonton's contribution to climate change, and to track its progress against its target to reduce the community's emissions by 35% relative to 2005 by 2035.
Staff calculate Edmonton's greenhouse gas emissions using the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories, which is an international standard that allows the Edmonton to be compared with other cities around the world.
Edmonton's emissions are reported to a "Basic +" level, meaning that it includes: vehicle, train, boat and airplane fuel use, natural gas used to heat buildings, electricity used for industrial, commercial and residential purposes, emissions from landfills, emissions from industrial processes and product use, as well as from livestock and land, and CO2 absorption from our urban forest and agricultural land areas.
