Climate Action Plan

Print

The Town of Truckee has begun the process of creating Truckee's first Climate Action Plan.  The first step in the process was to complete an inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which was completed in April 2016, establishing baselines for use in guiding GHG emissions reductions efforts and setting targets in the Climate Action Plan. The results of the study were presented in a public workshop in May 2016.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Public Draft (April 2016)

The report documents the results of the 2008 baseline greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories for community-wide activities and sources, and the municipal operations of the Town of Truckee. This report is intended to guide local GHG emissions reduction efforts, provide a baseline against which the Town will be able to compare future performance and for use in demonstrating progress in reducing emissions. This report can also be used as the baseline to forecast emissions and set emissions reduction targets in a Climate Action Plan. Through these and other efforts, the Town of Truckee can achieve benefits beyond reducing emissions. These benefits include saving community members’ and tax payers’ money, improving the Town’s economic vitality and ultimately increasing the quality of life for residents and other community members.
