Other Process and Fugitive Emissions

Local governments may own and/or operate sources of emissions other than those cited in the LGOP, and should asses their operations for such potential sources of GHG emissions.

Chapter 11 of the LGOP lists other possible sources of local government process or fugitive GHG emissions, and provides references to existing methodologies for quantifying them:
