Drawdown Georgia GHG Emissions Tracker
Track Greenhouse Gas Emissions In Georgia
The Drawdown Georgia GHG Emissions Tracker provides greenhouse gas emissions data at the state- and county-level for Georgia. Emissions are categorized by sector to give us a picture of where emissions are now and how they change as we advance on our goal of drawing down Georgia’s carbon emissions. This interactive map was developed by leading researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology based on publicly available data and is updated monthly.
Available Only on Laptop and Desktop
Thank you for your interest in the Drawdown Georgia GHG Emissions Tracker. It is best viewed on a laptop or desktop, so we are only providing it in that format.

GHG Emissions Tracker Key Terms
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
The mix of gases that trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, including: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases. GHG emissions on this tracker are represented as carbon dioxide equivalent, a standardized way to describe the global warming potential of any GHG. Emissions are converted into the amount of carbon dioxide that would have the same global warming impact.
Metric Tons (mt)
This is the unit of measurement for greenhouse gas emissions on the tracker. One metric ton equals 2,205 pounds and is about half the weight of a full-sized pickup truck or mid-sized SUV.
Net Emissions on this tracker reflect the difference between total emissions from transportation, industry, buildings and agriculture and the carbon reduction that comes from forests in Georgia.
Tracking the Path to Net Zero Emissions in Georgia
The Drawdown Georgia Emissions Tracker is reporting our progress toward net zero emissions for the state, making it possible to observe local action on carbon neutrality in close to real time. The First Law of Holes and Climate Change According to Wikipedia,
Explore the Climate Impact of the Inflation Reduction Act with the GHG Emissions Tracker
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is being heralded by many in the movement as the most important U.S. climate legislation in, well, forever. The bill takes an innovative “carrot” approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by establishing a large set of
Tracking Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Georgia
As we work collectively to draw down greenhouse gas emissions in Georgia, we can now track and visualize that progress. Introducing a New Greenhouse Gas Emissions Tracking Tool The new Drawdown Georgia GHG Emissions Tracker is a free, interactive tool that
