San Diego County Greenhouse Gas Inventory

Created: 8/31/2008 - Updated: 11/06/2018


This project endeavored to inventory all greenhouse gas emissions from San Diego County over the 1990-2006 time period. Using this data, the report estimates greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 provided trends remain the same. Finally, the study calculated the theoretical emissions reductions necessary in each emission category to reduce San Diego’s emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. Emissions were calculated using the same methodology developed by the California Air Resources Board.
