Sectors

To construct emissions inventories for each geography, the CTI methodology uses a bottom-up approach, evaluating activity metrics and their associated emissions intensity metrics. The product of activities and emissions intensity metrics results in estimates of sub-sector emissions, which are aggregated to arrive at total emissions for the sector.
