The project involves three areas of operation in which are integrated, along with the preparation, monitoring and communication several actions of a demonstrative and innovative actions.

The project includes preparatory actions addressed especially to contextualize and therefore to demonstrate techniques and methods that work within the project: "A.1 Measurement of Potential of absorption of the territories", "A.2 Afforestation and reforestation plan, "B.1 Database implementation and development for CO2 Accountancy actions ',' B.2 Local carbon market assessment and shaping", "C.1 Local characterization for Kyoto goals", "Public real estate C.2 Energy audit", "C .3 Environmental Sustainability of Consumption in the public administration. "Within the said actions other activities are involved such as "F.1 Monitoring of emission reduction and compensation mechanisms activation" and "F.2 On going monitoring of project phases and activities," and from "D.4 Public awareness and dissemination" "Publication of information D.5 report (Layman's report) in Italian and in English" and "After Life + D.6 Communication Plan", focused on evaluation and active dissemination of results and lessons learned.

Among the enforcement actions can be characterized as demonstration: A.3 Forestry Plan as LULUCF "," C.4 Integration of climate strategy into local strategy work "," C.5 Local Environmental accounting and reporting "," Energy savings C.6 evaluation "," C.7 green procurement consulting team. " These actions aim to put it into practice, test, evaluate and disseminate new measuring methods in the local context of the project.

All enforcement actions provide evidence for the complete application of the methodology, in the territories of the Italian mountain communities involved, according to a pilot scheme.

This pilot scheme is implemented in Italy, and restated its application to the other involved territories of Greece and Malta, in relation to territorial specificities.

It should be stressed that in developing concepts related to decision support systems, planning tools, dissemination of information and knowledge, any action foresees a specific implementation process to assess their technical and economic feasibility and comparison with the situation.

Among the enforcement actions are characterized as innovative, "B.3 Local carbon market implementation, organization and development" and "green C.8 Central procurement unit.

Action B3 develops an innovative methodology and process in trade and the mechanisms for offsetting emissions. While the action aims to achieve a breakthrough with business models and economic exchange using not only credits related to forestry activities, but also identifying containment actions implemented by institutions participating in emissions (e.g. energy efficiency of a public premises/building). In order to develop a voluntary market in emissions, the main aim is to build up a more complex area of exchange which - using the logic of identification of the activity, of its space/time determination, its certification by a third party (public). Thus any activity directed towards the reduction of the emissions can be the subject of the transaction and thus may help to find resources, including financial (e.g. a private company could sponsor the purchase of energy-saving lamps and bulbs for a school complex).

The action C.8 develops an innovative procurement process of entities involved in setting up and consists of a Central Unit for Purchasing Green Products. The Italian legislation foresees the opportunity for public bodies to join themselves together to make purchases. The innovation of the purchasing process does not deal with the institutional aspect. It is rather to streamline and reform the logic of purchasing into the logic of the participants to reduce their overall ecological footprint (consumption restraints, green products, logistics, transport, etc). This logic, which is widely experienced in the processes of Green Public Procurement, located in the project SUNEAGLE its implementation/organization in developing innovative networking logic of " virtual green stores ": entities from which the participants can choose to suite their own needs and benefit the obvious economies of scale, streamlining procurement and efficiency, the automation of storage and reduced transport/delivery costs (e.g. purchases are made with the seller and warehouse deliveries are carried out for more bodies at the same time, reducing travel carriers).

Innovative actions will provide the complete application, according to a pilot scheme, the methodology, in the territories of the Italian mountain communities involved. The pilot scheme is proposed and then restated in its settings in the involved territories of Greece and Malta, re-modulated in relation to territorial specificities.
