The County’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) is a plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that result from activities within the unincorporated area as a result of County operations. The CAP identifies specific measures, that in combination with State legislative actions, will result in total GHG reductions that meet established 2020 and 2030 reduction targets. CAP measures are organized under five GHG emission sectors including Built Environment & Transportation, Energy, Solid Waste, Water & Waste Water, and Agriculture & Conservation.
Each CAP measure has an implementation timeframe, and the CAP established a strict monitoring protocol that includes annual reporting, biennial inventory updates, and CAP updates every 5 years beginning in 2025. This monitoring framework allows the County to track progress and respond to changes in legislation, technology or underperforming measures while meeting the 2020 and 2030 reduction targets, and 2050 goal.
