An Introduction to Greenhouse Gas Inventorying

Watch Recording Here

The Sierra Nevada Alliance and Sierra Business Council are excited to once again be partnering to bring information and resources to Sierra communities. Join us on Tuesday, April 30 from 2:00-3:00 pm for our webinar: An Introduction to Greenhouse Gas Inventorying.

In 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 32. This landmark climate bill requires California to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. In the face of rising threats caused by climate change, these emissions reductions are now more critical than ever to ensure a healthy and sustainable future. But how can a community know if they’re helping or hurting–if they’re reducing emissions or continuing on a Business-As-Usual emissions scenario?

In this webinar, we will explore the importance of greenhouse gas inventorying in empowering communities to take charge of their carbon footprint. Inventories are used to estimate the greenhouse gases that a community or government emit each year. These inventories are a crucial component in climate planning, and we’re excited to share with you the basics and show you some local Sierra examples. Please join us for this exciting and instructive webinar to learn more about how greenhouse gas inventories can be a powerful tool for your community to help combat climate change.
