Carbon measurement tool for local authorities

Hi there, we are working with a number of local authorities in New Zealand who have set emission reduction targets. To encourage stakeholders and projects funded by these authorities to consider and reduce their carbon footprint these local authorities are looking for a suitable carbon measurement tool. Are any of you working with or aware of a simple carbon calulator for projects that enables users to estimate the likely carbon emissions on a life cycle basis, i.e. including upstream and downstream emissions and covering planning, design, construction, operation and user emissions?
