Climate Action Plan

The City adopted a Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2017 setting an ambitious target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from City activities by 50% below 2010 levels by 2035. The latest SANDAG GHG inventory completed in 2018 shows that the City has already reduced emissions by 40%.

In 2020, City Council updated the Climate Adaptation Chapter (Chapter 4) to incorporate the latest adaptation research and recommendations as well as to introduce environmental justice considerations.
