Best Practices and Better Protocols: BC Ministry of the Environment

The BC Government’s Community Energy and Emissions Inventory Initiative (CEEI) intends to collect and centralize high-quality geocoded data to generate high-value  community inventories for the province’s 185 local governments.
Community inventories can be valuable tools to help municipalities plan and implement  effective GHG (greenhouse gas) and sustainable energy management strategies and strengthen broader sustainability planning at the local level.  They can also help other local institutions and senior governments strengthen climate and energy policy development.
This report offers strategic guidance for a comprehensive community emissions inventory system based on a high level review of international best practices.
