Measuring London’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions

September 2011: The GLA have approved work to commission consultant support to measure London’s greenhouse gas emissions. This analysis is needed as to: “deliver on the commitments set out in the Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy (CCMES), the Climate Change Mitigation and Energy team will need to update the London Energy and Greenhouse Gas Inventory (LEGGI) for 2011 and develop a new methodology and emissions inventory covering London’s indirect CO2e emissions. There is currently no existing UK or international standard to measure city-wide indirect CO2e emissions. To develop a robust, credible and tailored methodology, a consensus-based approach run by an independent facilitator and involving a stakeholder consultation process is recommended. This will focus primarily on the food, retail and construction sectors. Both inventories will contribute to the Mayor’s CCMES annual progress report, which is due in late 2012.”
