Call for Applications from North Central Texas Cities for Developing City-wide GHG Inventories


The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) will be reopening the call for applications from cities in the North Central Texas 12-county Metropolitan Planning Area to participate in a regional cohort to produce city-wide greenhouse gas emission (GHG) inventories. In partnership with the Regional Integration of Sustainability Efforts (RISE) Coalition, and with the generous contribution from Burlington-Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad, NCTCOG is providing 20 cities in the North Central Texas 12-county Metropolitan Planning Area access to Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), formally known as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, ClearPath software tool at no cost. There are currently eight cities in our region that have joined the cohort, and two additional cities that have partnered in the effort by doing their own GHG study concurrently. All participating cities will be able to use ClearPath to produce their own city-wide GHG inventories. Cities interested in participating must submit an application by July 30, 2021 and will need to be a commit to attendance of ICLEI and cohort trainings/meeting/check-ins and collaborate with NCTCOG to provide necessary data inputs. ICLEI’s ClearPath software tool has been used to complete GHG inventories in over 475 jurisdictions in the United States and is considered the leading online software platform for completing GHG inventories, forecasts, and monitoring at the community-side scale. The Call for Applications from cities will reopen from May 31 and closes July 30, 2021. Cities interested in submitting an application need to be a current NCTCOG member, commit to attendance of ICLEI and cohort trainings/meeting/check-ins and collaborate with NCTCOG to provide necessary data inputs. Visit the Call for Application and Project website to find more information about the Regional GHG inventory. *Metropolitan Planning Area counties are: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise NCTCOG Contact: Jenny Narvaez, jnarvaez@nctcog.org
