City Action for Urban Sustainability (CURB) Tool

CURB, Climate Action for Urban Sustainability, is an interactive scenario planning tool that help cities take action on climate change. The tool enables cities to identify and prioritize GHG reduction opportunities within their communities. Inputs should primarily be the GHG inventory developed through the ClearPath measurement tool. The tool’s output is a suite of scenarios that cities can use to explore building its climate action plan, by incorporating actions in key sectors (transportation, buildings, waste management) where cities have the greatest control.
