Existing Projects
The Team began by identifying projects and programs
their departments had put in place since the original
greenhouse gas inventory of municipal operations was
performed in 2007. This allowed the Team to track
progress from the established emissions baseline,
evaluate what worked well, and share lessons learned.
The strategies highlighted in this section represent
some of the City’s successes to date and contributed
to the impressive 10% reduction in energy use and
carbon emissions realized since the 2007 inventory.
