In 2015, the City of Carlsbad was one of the first cities in the county to adopt a qualified Climate Action Plan, or CAP, that outlined strategies and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, or GHG. Since then, communitywide GHG inventories and statewide targets have been updated, presenting the opportunity for the city to update its CAP and further pursue the community’s goal of promoting a sustainable environment.
In early 2022, the city asked the public to shape the CAP Update by providing input on environmental sustainability needs and priorities. This public input was used to help develop measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which will be available for public review and input in early fall.
