The City of West Hollywood adopted a Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2011 as an implementation measure of the General Plan 2035. This plan identifies community and municipal strategies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve sustainability within municipal operations and the community as a whole.
The CAP identifies implementation action items and the City tracks emissions reduction progress in the following sectors:
The CAP set an emissions reduction goal of 20 to 25 percent below 2008 emissions levels by 2035. As of 2017, the City has achieved a 16.5% reduction in GHG emissions and is well on it's way to meeting its target. The City has also implemented 75% of the action items identified in the CAP.
The City submits a CAP Annual Progress Report to the State of California Governor's Office of Planning and Research on CAP implementation progress as a companion to the General Plan 2035 Annual Progress Report. Please see the Annual Reports and summary infographics below:
