I am brainstorming for a proposal on how to best measure environmental sustainable processes for a local government. Essentially, I'm beginning to look at how new policies drawn-up with green intentions can be effectively measure in both dollars and cents and impact on the environment. Carbon emmissions are an obvious area, but I'm not sure if sufficient baseline data exists to measure the change.
While I have done some research on the subject, I'd greatly appreciate any advice on how to best do this.
