Compact of Mayors
Mayor Andrew J. Ginther signed onto the Compact of Mayors in January 2016. This is a commitment to do the following:
1) Build and complete a community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory with a breakdown of emissions for buildings and transport sectors, using the GPC standard;
(2) Identify climate hazards; and
(3) Report on both via the CDP or carbon Climate Registry questionnaires.
CREATE REDUCTION TARGETS AND ESTABLISH A SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT.
Within two years, the registered city must update its GHG inventory to also include a breakdown of emissions from waste sector.; set a target to reduce its GHG emissions; conduct a climate change vulnerability assessment consistent with Compact guidance; and report in its chosen platform.
ESTABLISH AN ACTION PLAN. Within three years, a city’s strategic action plan must show how it will deliver on its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change.
