Very little. The underlying approach to Snapshot since its inception is that developing profiles for community groups and councils should not be costly or arduous. The process should be transparent and easy, compliant with international protocols and practices, and not result in the duplication of effort or resources.
As a sector, if councils, community groups and other local government stakeholders are still spending too much time and resources developing “baseline” emissions profiles then we are not doing our job. Ironbark have provided the IP developed through work with 100 councils since 2015 to Snapshot. BZE have done likewise and we now have a tool that is co-owned by local government technical and programmatic experts and a not-for-profit organisation to benefit all councils and communities.
