Climate Action Plan

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the use of clean fuels, public transit, cycling, alternative energy, technology enhancements, and higher efficiency vehicles and facilities has positive impacts on community health.

Lane County is beginning the first phase of a three-phased approach to the development of the Climate Action Plan.

We have developed an internal operations greenhouse gas emissions inventory as part of Phase 1. You can view and download the report (11 MB).
