Greenhouse Gas Inventories

The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) effect is a well-documented process that contributes to a variety of environmental issues, including the acceleration of climate change, local and regional pollution and related impacts. Cities, counties and municipalities are among the most common units of scale used to understand and measure greenhouse gas emissions activity. To reduce these emissions and mitigate their impacts, Miami-Dade County seeks to measure and track GHG emissions to identify which activities generate emissions, how these patterns change over time, and implement solutions to reduce GHG emissions.
