Climate Action Plans for Cities
Of California’s 482 cities, 181 have completed climate action plans. (2019 Summary of CAPs in California)
Steps for Writing a Climate Action Plan
- Start with a community-wide greenhouse gas emissions inventory for your city or county. A municipal or government inventory will only cover emissions caused by local government.
- Set a goal for emissions reduction.
- Identify initiatives and implementation measures to reach your emissions reduction goals.
- Establish metrics to measure progress towards goals. Track and report on progress.
