Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program
 


Original 1605(b) Program Calculation Tools

The workbooks below were developed to assist participants in the original Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program to estimate the carbon sequestered by urban forestry activities and to estimate emissions reductions from recycling, source reduction, or composting activities, respectively. The original Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program was based on guidelines issued in October 1994, which have been superseded by guidelines finalized in 2007.

Please note that the underlying methods incorporated in the Urban Forestry and Recycling, Source Reduction, and Composting workbooks are not approved for reporting on Form EIA-1605 under the revised guidelines.

The Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program is making these tools available because of continued interest in using them to evaluate emission reduction and carbon sequestration measures. We have modified the previous versions of the tools to provide flexibility in the selection of the evaluation time period.

Questions can be directed to the InfoGHG@eia.doe.gov by email or to the hotline at 1-800-803-5182.
