Climate Change Committee

Orange County, Chapel Hill, and Carrboro (in conjunction with the Town of Hillsborough) are currently in the midst of a project to inventory greenhouse gas emissions and identify reduction measures and an action plan. A consulting firm, ICLEI Energy Services of Toronto, is conducting the inventory and action plan effort, in conjunction with a technical team of staff from the jurisdictions.  

A citizens advisory board, the Climate Change Committee, is also overseeing the effort.  

A revised draft inventory has been created, which includes initial ideas on forecasts and possible reduction measures. The Committee will be meeting in June to discuss this, as well as a public outreach plan to share the findings to date.
