In December 2011, the City began the process of developing a greenhouse gas inventory
and forecast. The first step is to identify a baseline year that allows for collection of
complete data. A greenhouse gas emissions inventory for municipal operations and
communitywide was conducted for the year 2008.
The purpose of greenhouse gas emission inventory is to identify sources and the amount emitted to enable the City to implement the most effective greenhouse gas reduction strategies and measures. The business-as-usual forecasts estimate the level of greenhouse gas emissions for community-wide activities and local government operations if strategies were not implemented. The forecasts are for years 2020 and 2035. The inventory and forecasts will be used to support the City's Climate Action Plan.
