Cities can calculate overall progress toward achieving their emissions reduction target using the following steps:
- Calculate emissions during the target period or target year.
- Calculate the change in emissions since setting the target and calculate additional emission reductions needed to achieve the target.
- Assess why emissions have changed since the start of the target and whether the city is on track to achieve the target.
For more information on monitoring and reporting progress toward the target, see chapters 8 and 9 of the Mitigation Goal Standard.
