San Diego’s Roadmap to Success

The City of San Diego adopted a landmark Climate Action Plan (CAP) at the end of 2015 that will cut their carbon emissions in half and bring 100 percent renewable electricity to the city by 2035. This makes San Diego the largest city in the United States with this legally binding commitment. Nicole Capretz, of Climate Action Campaign, and author of San Diego’s plan, comes to Irvine to present important information on:

  • California mandates for greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction
  • Content of San Diego’s CAP
  • Roadmap to success

This event will provide valuable lessons as our Orange County cities move to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in compliance with State goals.
