Inventory data gives us a baseline understanding of our community's carbon footprint. The data here inform our priorities and help us track and measure progress.
We envision a vibrant and resilient Missoula community that has established the necessary metrics and carbon emissions inventory to track, report, and make progress toward Climate Smart goals.
Our community will create a framework for conducting a community wide carbon emissions inventory, establish the necessary infrastructure to complete successive inventory updates with replicable methodology, and work with each bucket to create appropriate metrics that will track the progress of mitigation and resiliency projects and initiatives.
from our 2015 action plan
Our 2015 Community Climate Action Plan identified strategies for a 11 buckets, including Inventory and Metrics. In 2015, the top priority was to conduct a community greenhouse gas inventory, which we completed in the spring of 2017.
