Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories

The first step in establishing a Climate Action Plan is to quantify the past and current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from both the municipality and from the other community sources (transportation, residential homes, business and industry). This information enables us to identify key emissions sectors, prioritize reduction strategies, and set initial reduction levels from which to track program success. It also demonstrates the reductions our community has made to date. Santa Cruz has completed four GHG Emissions Inventories (1996, 2000, 2005, and 2008).
