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.

The City anticipates revising its Climate Action Plan in 2022.

We welcome and encourage as much community participation as possible as we update this extremely important Plan!
