Document Description
The City has developed the CAP to achieve a number of objectives, including equitable climate outcomes, a safer future and enhanced quality of life for the community, new economic opportunities through green jobs, enhanced social equity and citizen engagement on the issue of climate change, increased use and accessibility of active and public transportation, and reduced obstacles for building decarbonization. The CAP addresses communitywide GHG emissions and includes an aspirational target to reduce community-wide GHG emissions output to carbon neutrality by 2035. It also includes an interim target to reduce communitywide GHG emissions to 2.51 MT of CO2e per person (or 181,018 MT of CO2e in total emissions) by 2030. This corresponds to an approximately 40 percent reduction in per capita and associated total mass emissions below 1990 levels by 2030, meeting the California Senate Bill 32 target for 2030 to reduce total GHG emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels.
