Carbon Neutrality Resolution
Exciting news! On April 21, the City Council passed a resolution for Mountain View to become a carbon neutral city by 2045. This means that in addition to achieving the adopted 2045 greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target of 75% below 2005 levels, Mountain View has committed to balancing any remaining GHG emissions with carbon sequestration projects (such as planting trees or restoring wetlands) and/or carbon offsets. You can read the full resolution here.
2018 Government Operations Greenhouse Gas Inventory
On April 21, the City Council also adopted the 2018 Government Operations GHG Inventory. This inventory estimates the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the City’s operations, including energy use, fleet vehicles, employee commuting, and operation of the Shoreline landfill. We’re excited to report that we’ve successfully reduced our GHG emissions 51% since 2005, exceeding even our 2030 reduction target! You can read the full report here.
