Local Government Operations Protocol Now Available for Public Comment

Written Public Comments Due July 18, 2008, 5:00 PM PDT Local Governments across the United States will soon benefit from a common greenhouse gas accounting and reporting standard. The California Climate Action Registry has partnered with the California Air Resources Board, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, and The Climate Registry to develop a greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting protocol for local government operations.

Local Government Operations Protocol (LGO Protocol)

These partner organizations have worked with dozens of stakeholders over the last four months to develop the Local Government Operations Protocol (LGO Protocol).

For California Registry local government members, the LGO Protocol will serve as a sector-specific protocol that provides the policy framework, calculation methodologies, and reporting guidance for quantifying GHG emissions from local government operations.

The protocol is based largely on current guidance available to California Registry members, but does include some new guidance, including quantification methodologies that account for the diverse services local governments provide, such as wastewater treatment and solid waste management. The LGO Protocol also includes a local government report template that requires additional information beyond what is currently reported in CARROT.

The draft Local Government Operations Protocol is now available for review and comment. Written comments should be submitted by 5:00 PM PDT on July 18, 2008 to Instructions for submitting LGO protocol comments can be found here.

More information about the Protocol and its development process, a PDF of the Protocol and the instructions on how to submit comments are also available online.

PUBLIC WORKSHOP: July 10, 2008

We will hold a public workshop to discuss the LGO protocol and answer questions on Thursday, July 10 from 9 AM - 12 PM PDT at the Cal/EPA Building in Sacramento. More information on the workshop is available at ARB.CA.GOV
