Consumption-based greenhouse gas emissions of C40 cities

Author: C40
Publisher:C40
2018

This report presents the methodology and results of a study investigating the consumption based greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from 79 cities, carried out by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) in partnership with the University of Leeds (United Kingdom), the University of New South Wales (Australia), and Arup. Consumption-based GHG accounting is an alternative to the sector-based approach to measuring city GHG emissions. This focuses on the consumption of goods and services (such as food, clothing, electronic equipment, etc.) by residents of a city, and GHG emissions are reported by consumption category rather than GHG emission source category.
