This tool by the EPA has two different modules which assist local and municipal entities in GHG assessment.

Local Government Operations (LGOP) Module: helps users to develop a municipal greenhouse gas inventory of government operations for a base year, following the Local Government Operations Protocol (LGOP), version 1.1.

Community Module: helps users to develop a base year community-wide greenhouse gas inventory, following the Global Protocol for Community‐Scale GHG Emissions (GPC). This is a companion tool to the Local Government Operations Module, and any totals estimated in the Local Government Operations Module should be included in the Industrial/Commercial sector in the Community GHG Inventory tool.
