“The City has formed a partnership with ENXSuite and will be using ENXSuite’s software, Green City Suite, to collect and analyze data in the future. Among its abilities, ENXSuite software will specifically help CCAP by: collating data; inserting data into a dashboard of CCAP progress; providing analysis and reporting capabilities; administrative abilities to maintain a flexible software platform; and helping to benchmark progress against other entities.”

Cities include a variety of emissions sources in their inventories To specifically address the differences in methodologies between city governments, CDP asked C40 cities to identify the emissions sources that were included in their GHG inventories. The results indicate concordance in some areas while showing variation in other areas. More than half of the cities, for example, include buildings, transport (public transport and fleet) and street lighting in their city government operations emissions inventories. Some cities extensively disclose emissions subcategories of sources (e.g. Toronto and São Paulo each include over 10 primary sources in their inventory), whereas other cities disclose total emissions only. 16,17
