Since 2000, Chula Vista has been implementing a “Climate Action Plan” to address the threat of climate change impacts to the local community. The most recent plan is the 2017 Climate Action Plan (CAP) which was adopted by City Council on September 26, 2017. It includes ambitious new goals and policies to strengthen the City’s climate action efforts. Implementing the CAP facilitates achieving numerous community co-benefits such as utility savings, better air quality, reduced traffic congestion, local economic development, and improved quality of life. It brings together past City of Chula Vista climate plan efforts including the original Carbon Dioxide Reduction Plan (2000), the mitigation plan (2008) and the adaptation plan (2011). The City regularly conducts greenhouse gas (GHG) emission inventories to help guiding the execution of the Climate Action Plan as well as to monitor and evaluate the progress.
