Funds to conduct a comprehensive study to determine our current greenhouse gas emissions were adopted in the FY 2023 and 2024 budgets. The results will allow us to determine our baseline and establish reduction targets.
In June 2023, we entered into a contract with Cascadia Consulting Group. The team met in late June to kickoff the project frame work, timeline, goals and the public engagement component.
A study to determine the community’s greenhouse gas baseline kicked off June 2023.
An overview was presented to County Council at the August 22, 2023 council meeting on how this project will proceed, including the public and stakeholder feedback element. The findings will then be incorporated into a subsequent climate action plan.
The final Climate Action Plan will be completed in 16 months or by October 2024. Creating an official plan will help achieve the County Council’s strategic goal of Environmental Stewardship and keep Los Alamos County on target to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
As the project progresses, we will share information on this webpage.
