The City of Pinole is currently drafting a Climate Action and Adaption Plan (CAAP). The CAAP will establish a clear roadmap to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase resilience to climate change within the community. Pinole recognizes the need for comprehensive, fiscally responsible solutions while employing actionable, measurable, and time-bound metrics to gauge success. The CAAP will therefore build upon the City’s existing sustainability efforts while employing a thorough analysis of communitywide systems (including a Community GHG Inventory, Municipal GHG Inventory, and social vulnerability assessment) to establish a series of measures and actions that guide the City towards long-term GHG emission reduction and adaptation goals.
This CAAP Dashboard serves as an interactive tool for the community to explore the City’s existing GHG emissions. The dashboard presents Pinole’s 2017 Community GHG Inventory and 2021 Municipal GHG Inventory. As Pinole adopts the CAAP and begins to implement the measures and actions, progress will be tracked through periodic updates to this dashboard.
Note: MT CO2e = metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. This metric measures the amount of carbon dioxide and other GHGs being released into the atmosphere and contributing to climate change.
