The Climate Action & Adaptation Plan sets a goal to achieve an 80% reduction (below 1990 levels) in community carbon emissions by 2030.
The Climate Action section focuses on eight objectives in three sectors:
- Zero Net Carbon Buildings
- Zero Waste
- Sustainable Mobility
The Climate Adaptation section focuses on community resilience to climate change through four sectors:
- Climate Ready Community
- Water Self-Sufficiency
- Coastal Flooding Preparedness
- Low Carbon Food & Ecosystems
Santa Monica tracks progress toward the City's ambitious targets through greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories. These inventories provide a snapshot of our community’s carbon impact and identify opportunities to reduce emissions. Tracking these data is a best practice to ensure accountability and monitor progress over time. Santa Monica has been tracking local greenhouse gas emissions for over 20 years with periodic community inventories.
