In 2017, Over 120 cities used the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC) methodology to calculate their emissions. This is a 70% increase on the previous year. Explore cities emissions inventory data to better understand what cities are managing.
Annual city-wide emissions for more than 100 global cities. Includes information about how cities measured emissions (primary protocol), as well as why emissions rose/fell since prior reporting period.
Cities house half the world’s population but represent almost two-thirds of global energy demand and 70% of carbon emissions from the energy sector. Therefore, our cities have a vital role to play in the transition to a sustainable economy. This dataset provides information on the electricity, heat, steam and cooling consumed by local governments. The question in the 2017 CDP Questionnaire was as follows: "How much electricity, heat, steam, and cooling (refers to Scope 2 emissions) has your local government purchased for its own consumption during the reporting year?"
CDP is working in partnership with The Climate Group to provide the world’s first global platform for states and regions to measure, manage and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions. CDP and The Climate Group are united in their firm belief on the vital role that state and regional governments play in driving climate action and delivering sustainable economies that avoid dangerous climate change and leads to a net-zero emissions world. Use this data to explore GHG emissions from state and regional governments.
