City of Aspen Climate Action Plan +The Plan references Aspen's greenhouse gas emissions inventory, however the City did not use a publicly available tool to generate its inventory. The City also made a legally binding commitment to reduces its government operations by joining the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), however as of the end of 2010, the CCX has stopped this program. The Plan calls for the creation of a "low carbon footprint" guideline for city events which has resulted in the Green events checklist and event report cards available at: http://aspenpitkin.com/Living-in-the-Valley/Green-Initiatives/Aspen-ZGreen/Events/. The Canary Initiative has also developed an energy tracker for business and citizens to track their energy use (http://aspenpitkin.com/Living-in-the-Valley/Green-Initiatives/Aspen-ZGreen/) and a carbon calculator and offset program for offsetting emissions (www.canarytags.com)
