GHG Emissions from City Facilities

The greenhouse gases that we emit by burning fossil fuels to power our buildings, vehicles, and industry have far-reaching and unpredictable environmental and economic consequences. City-owned buildings use a considerable amount of energy and contribute to the City's greenhouse gas emissions. The GHG emissions from city facilities is a measure of how well the City is doing as a major owner and operator of buildings to improve energy efficiency reduce our impact on climate change. The City's target is a 20% reduction in GHG emissions from operations by 2020.
