Frequently Asked Questions

Has the data been verified?

Yes. Snapshot is underpinned by a common international framework, the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC Protocol) to allow for comparison between municipalities.

Snapshot has been developed with input from Australia’s leading experts and based on decades of experience working with hundreds of councils and community groups throughout Australia. Through ongoing engagement with key stakeholders and industry experts the Snapshot data, methodology and calculations have been independently verified as aligned with the GPC and with best practice industry standards for community emissions profile development in Australia.

The development of community emissions profiles is complex and there are many different approaches which can be considered to be aligned with the GPC and in line best practice. All verification has been undertaken in good faith to support council and community access to high quality community emissions profiles and to increase community emissions literacy and climate action planning capacity within the sector.
