Climate Change

Resolution 2008-822 establishes a community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target of 80% below the 2007 baseline by 2050. Subsequent commitments have included establishment of a regional GHG emissions reduction goal of eighty-two percent (82%) below 2010 levels by 2050. Since establishing a reductions target, Broward County has achieved major milestones such as conducting a greenhouse gas emissions analysis with baseline inventory and forecast, developing a climate action plan, implementing a climate action plan, and monitoring progress and reporting results.
