Document Description
The City of Chico is preparing the CAP Update to include measures addressing communitywide GHG emissions. Using the 2017 GHG emissions as a baseline, the City is committed to a GHG emissions reduction target of 2.71 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MT of CO2e) per person (or 292,437 MT of CO2e in total emissions) by 2030. This corresponds to an 80 percent reduction in per capita emissions (or a 46 percent reduction in total emissions) below 1990 levels by 2030, exceeding the California Senate Bill 32 target of 40 percent reduction in total emissions by 2030. The Chico 2030 GHG emissions target is selected to be consistent with California Senate Bill 32 State emissions targets and CEQA Guidelines 15183.5 for a qualified GHG emissions reduction strategy, and to be achievable by City-supported measures identified in the Chico CAP Update. To achieve the Chico 2030 GHG emissions target, the CAP Update includes 13 measures related to energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, development patterns, solid waste, water, urban trees and greenspace, and community engagement.
