2020 Greenhouse Gas Progress Report (2018 data)
Appendix B Greenhouse Gas Reduction Calculations (pdf)
June 11, 2019 Town Council Presentation
The Plan calls for a wide range of actions ranging from reducing car emissions and miles driven to increasing renewable energy, community resilience to extremes, and natural climate solutions for both sequestration and adaptation. These efforts are designed to result in:
- 54% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 from a 2005 baseline (or 45% below 1990 level; higher than current CA goal of 40% below 1990 levels by 2030).
- Carbon neutrality no later than 2045 (same as Governor Jerry Brown’s Executive Order B-55-18).
The Plan also calls for instituting a “Framework for a Post-Carbon Community” to guide the annual Plan update process to help ensure a robust low-carbon economy that creates good jobs and benefits the whole community. California as a whole is a great example with state emissions declining 9% since 2006, while the economy has grown 16%.
