2030 Climate Action Plan

NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
In 2018, the County of Santa Barbara adopted a goal of 50 percent net reduction from 2018 emissions levels by 2030, and carbon neutrality by 2045. To reach this goal, the County is proposing to update the 2015 Energy and Climate Action Plan (i.e., the Proposed Plan; 2030 CAP). The 2030 CAP would include a community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory and create climate action strategies to address issues related to improving building efficiency; decreasing transportation emissions; decreasing emissions related to water, wastewater, and solid waste; increasing carbon sequestration, creating food system improvements; and encouraging a low carbon economy. Climate action strategies within the 2030 CAP would be fulfilled through implementation of 2030 CAP Measures and Actions. A Measure is a long-range policy developed to achieve specific GHG reductions. An Action is a specific program or step that supports GHG reduction Measures. Adoption of the 2030 CAP would require accompanying amendments to the Energy Element and amendments to other components of the Santa Barbara County Comprehensive Plan as needed for consistency with 2030 CAP Measures and Actions.
