Community Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Buildings and transportation are two major sources of community greenhouse gas emissions that can have far-reaching and unpredictable environmental and economic consequences. GHG emissions can be reduced in part by limiting energy consumption. Retrofits of existing buildings, construction of new more efficient buildings, greener commercial fleets using more energy-efficient technologies, and the promotion of active and alternative transportation contribute to creating fewer GHG emissions as well as saving money. The City's target is to reduce per capita GHG emissions by 33% by 2020 and by 80% by 2050.
