Municipal consumption-based inventories of GHG emissions

A base for just and sustainable climate neutral Nordic municipalities


Publish date
To reduce global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) effectively and justly, consumption patterns that maintain the high global emission levels need to be addressed.

Inventories of consumption-based emissions support such actions, and municipalities should be supported with data and encouraged to exchange experiences to develop and use such inventories
