The First Annual GHG Inventory Update

It’s been almost one year since the Mayor and Council adopted the Princeton Climate Action Plan (CAP). The plan calls for updating the community-wide production-based inventory every year. Long term trends and are difficult to ascertain from year-to-year, however, updating the inventory annually is important to stay on track for meeting the CAP goals of reducing emissions 50% by 2030, 65% by 2040 and 80% by 2050.

Princeton follows the U.S. Community Protocol for Accounting and Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Version 1.1, July 2013, developed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability USA. Learn more about the inventory and data sources in Appendix B of the Princeton Climate Action Plan.
