Greenhouse Gas Inventory

The SA Climate Ready Climate Action & Adaptation Plan requires the Office of Sustainability to complete a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory every two years. After passage of the plan in late 2019, the opportunity arose to pursue data collection for a 2019 inventory. This action allows for a more up-to-date depiction of the impact of GHG’s in San Antonio.

SA Climate Ready Advisory Committees

In order to effectively implement the CAAP, two externally-recruited committees will be established: a Technical and Community Advisory Committee and a Climate Equity Advisory Committee. Members of both committees will be selected based on technical expertise in elements related to climate mitigation and adaptation or other important areas related to plan implementation; representation of important perspectives; and an interest in collaboration to bring about successful outcomes.
