The Climate Leadership in Parks (CLIP) tool was developed for the National Park Service to enable national parks to easily complete an emissions inventory.
The CLIP Tool is a user-friendly, Microsoft Excel-based tool that consists primarily of two modules. The first module inventories the park’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and CAPs while the second module walks park staff through calculators and other resources that help them develop a Climate Action Plan aimed at reducing their GHGs and criteria air pollutants (CAPs).
The Climate Friendly Parks (CFP) Program stems from a partnership between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Park Service and works to educate, communicate, and mitigate climate change and air pollution. The CFP Program accomplishes these goals through workshops, outreach materials, and the Climate Leadership in Parks (CLIP) Tool.
