P2 Measurement Tools - Methodologies Report
Describes objective various P2 Measurement Tools used by state, local and tribal governments, and ac...


Some available online calculators and tools for tracking and quantifying environmental improvements and pollution prevention (P2), and reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are presented in the tables below.

Table 1 lists P2 related tools.

Table 2 discusses tools helpful in capturing and understanding GHG emission reductions or inventories.

Some tools are helpful for either pollution prevention activities or GHG emissions, and may be listed in both tables.
