The village has a goal of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 26% by 2025.
How do we know we’re on target?
Every few years, we conduct an inventory to see how much and what kinds of greenhouse gases are being emitted by different sectors of the village. We collect data on everything from our trash to how we heat our homes and convert all of the greenhouse gases emitted by our daily lives into metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), which represents everything in units of the global warming potential of carbon dioxide.

About the inventories
We use the ClearPath tool, the standard municipal greenhouse gas reporting platform, to calculate our emissions. Data is collected and reported according to the Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories Basic framework, which lets us compare ourselves to cities and towns across the globe.
