Dear Colleague,

You are cordially invited to the launch event of the world’s most widely accepted GHG accounting and reporting standard for cities – the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC). World Resources Institute (WRI), ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) and C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) will jointly launch this powerful GHG protocol for cities at 16:00 on December 8th at Lima City Hall, coinciding with the Lima Climate Change Conference (COP 20).

The first step for cities in realizing their mitigation potential is to identify and measure where their emissions come from. By providing a consistent and transparent way to measure emissions, the GPC enables cities to build more effective climate strategies and track the performance of actions already underway. The release of GPC will be a breakthrough moment for city-level climate action.

ICLEI and its partners look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues.
