Climate Action Plan 2030 and Beyond

The City of Dublin's (City) Climate Action Plan 2030 and Beyond (CAP 2030) establishes the beginning of a vision for the City to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045 and identifies 22 measures and 106 actions (policies, programs, projects) the City will take to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 while growing the population and economy. This is similar to taking over 15,000 vehicles off the road each year. CAP 2030 and Beyond focuses on making foundational changes, infrastructure investments, and policy directives across five focus areas: 100% Renewable and Carbon-free Electricity, Building Efficiency and Electrification, Sustainable Mobility and Land Use, Materials and Waste Management, and Municipal Leadership. While designed to make substantial progress towards the City of Dublin's GHG emissions reduction targets, the actions in these focus areas will also make holistic improvements to the Dublin community and way of life, enhancing equity, air quality, people-centric transportation, and ultimately creating a sustainable and resilient community.

This CAPDash page serves as a mechanism for the City of Dublin to track implementation of the GHG reduction measures included in CAP 2030 and Beyond and associated progress on GHG emissions reductions.

Through 2022, the Dublin communitywide 2022 GHG emissions inventory showed a 2% decrease in total emissions and a 22% decrease in per capita emissions between 2015 and 2022 which can be seen on the dashboard tab. These decreases were achieved despite a 25% increase in population in the same period. The overall decrease in mass GHG emissions was primarily driven by reduced electricity emissions, achieved by more energy efficient systems being included in new construction and by the communitywide default to Ava Community Energy’s Renewable 100 power.
