Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Greenhouse Gas Emissions Indicators and Approaches

June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper explores ways that states can measure greenhouse gas emissions from transportation and related indicators, such as vehicle miles traveled.
