The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has become one of the founding members of The Climate Registry, a nonprofit organization established to measure and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions in a common, accurate and transparent manner consistent across industry sectors and borders.
As a member of The Climate Registry, the MTA has agreed to measure, independently verify and publicly report its greenhouse gas emissions on an annual basis using The Climate Registry’s general reporting protocol. The protocol is based on the internationally recognized greenhouse gas measurement standards of the World Resources Institute and World Business Council on Sustainability.
Incorporated in March 2007 in Washington, D.C., The Climate Registry provides accurate and transparent measurement of greenhouse gas emissions and ensures consistency of measurement metrics across industry sectors and borders.
