Greenhouse Gas Accounting Methodology Review


Cascadia worked closely with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks to study its emissions accounting methods. Our team focused on producing a detailed—yet still actionable—report that recommended changes to the Department’s approaches to measuring its progress towards carbon neutrality. In addition to providing an objective assessment of the Department’s current practices, Cascadia developed recommendations for new methodologies that address carbon sequestration and specify best practices for GHG accounting for County parks and managed lands. Building on this work, our team is currently refining the report and conducting in-depth research into how best to calculate landfill gas emissions—an area we identified as needing more in-depth study and analysis.

I was very pleased with the experience we had recently working with Cascadia to develop our carbon inventory and finalize our sustainable action guide. It’s a very daunting task to begin the process of changing the way we do business and measure our success so to have the combination of expertise and patience that you brought to the effort really made it enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with Cascadia as BNBuilders moves farther and farther along in this process.
