The Common Carbon Metric 2.0 (CCM2.0)

The Common Carbon Metric 2.0 (CCM2.0) is a tool for measuring building energy related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy savings potential of the stock of new and existing buildings in an investment portfolio, municipality, region or country.

CCM2.0 generates an energy demand and GHG emissions base-line and enables the development of energy saving and GHG mitigation scenarios that can be used to support applications for climate finance for mitigation actions in the buildings sector under UNFCCC mechanisms such as the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF.)

The tool is based on a calculation methodology that conforms to ‘measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV)’ data standards. It supports:

  • Measurement of energy use and related GHG emissions from buildings & serves as the basis for assessing the 
potential for certain mitigation actions 

  • Reporting on the country’s/city’s GHG emissions and appropriate mitigation actions 

  • Verification of the compliance with mitigation commitments by enabling updating of energy use and emissions data over time.
