Regional Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan

In 2006, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill (AB) 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. The law establishes a limit on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the state of California to reduce state‐wide emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.

As a response, a project partnership, led by the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), the predecessor agency to SBCTA, has compiled an inventory of GHG emissions and developed reduction measures that could be adopted by the 21 Partnership cities of San Bernardino County. Once adopted, the regional greenhouse gas reduction plan will serve as the basis for cities in the County to develop a more detailed community level climate action plans (CAP).

The San Bernardino County Regional Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Plan provided SBCTA and the 21 Participating Cities with an inventory of GHG emissions, targets, and provided reduction strategies for each City, which are the first two steps in a six step process of climate action planning.

In addition, the Climate Action Plan (CAP) Implementation Tools Project, sponsored by Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), provided vital tools for the Participating Cities to use in the development, adoption, implementation, and monitoring of city specific CAPs, which will fulfill the remaining steps in the climate action planning process.
