Nearly 100 councils in Australia have completed internationally-recognised community emissions profiles and dozens that have set targets in line with what the science demands. It’s now time to move onto how we can use that information to determine the most effective pathways to action. At this webinar, we’ll explain how councils can ensure you are selecting interventions that will give your municipality the best chance of meeting emissions reductions targets.

Over the last 3 years, Ironbark have worked with 81 Australian councils to develop community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) profiles (or inventories) for their municipality.

We now have a team of 5 staff at Ironbark working in this area. We held a webinar on Monday 29th October 2018 to provide some big updates...

While developing a corporate (or internal) inventory is straight-forward enough, data limitations have hampered attempts to create complete community (or municipal-wide) inventories, while the lack of a clear and consistent protocol has frustrated those trying to account for various emission sources. However things have changed. There is now an internationally accepted reporting standard for...
