The 2018 CAP set a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 13% below 2012 levels by 2020 and 44% below 2012 levels by 2030. Through the implementation of our seven emission reduction strategies, the City has made real progress by surpassing our 2020 goal and reducing emissions by 14.6% below 2012 levels. Our CAP update will reevaluate priorities and determine new targets based on an updated baseline.
As outlined in the 2018 CAP, the City committed to updating the CAP every five years. The CAP update process has been initiated and will involve the development of an updated baseline greenhouse gas emissions inventory and projection, updated emissions reduction targets, updated emission reduction goals, and revised or additional measures, as warranted.
