Greenhouse Gas Inventories for the City and County of Milwaukee, WI

What we did

Historically, the City of Milwaukee was unable to complete a GHG inventory. They were interested in having an inventory that was compliant with GCoM as well as having an inventory that could be developed and evolved into further analysis, such as a Wedge Analysis. Milwaukee County engaged in the GHG inventories to better understand the sources of emissions and to make high impact SBT and actionable reduction strategies.
