Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories

One of the first steps a city takes toward protecting the environment from global warming and promoting environmental stewardship is to identify and account for the sources of emissions in its own backyard including municipal and communitywide emissions. The SBCCOG/SBESC completed greenhouse gas emissions inventories, for both government operations and communitywide activities, for the years 2005 and 2007 for each city in the South Bay.  To develop the inventories, the SBCCOG worked collaboratively with member cities assisting staff with the collection and aggregation of data and using ICLEI's Clean Air Climate Protection (CACP) software to quantify emissions.

EECAP Reports

South Bay cities, in concert with the South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG), are committed to providing a more livable, equitable, and economically vibrant community and sub-region through the implementation of energy efficiency measures and subsequent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By using energy more efficiently, South Bay cities will keep dollars in the local economy, create new green jobs, and improve the community’s quality of life. The efforts toward increasing energy efficiency described in these reports will be done in coordination with the City’s other planning and land use decisions. Through these Energy Efficiency Climate Action Plans (EECAP), South Bay cities have established goals and policies that incorporate environmental responsibility into their daily management of their communities and municipal operations.
