presentation overview
Presentation Overview
  • Why set a Goal?
  • What is a GHG Emission Reduction Goal?
  • Context: Current Guiding Regulations
  • How do you set a Goal?
why set a goal
Why set a Goal?

A goal gives your Action Plan a tangible, specific target that allows you to:

1) Prioritize actions

2) Measure progress

3) Take credit for results

what is a ghg emission reduction goal
What is a GHG Emission Reduction Goal?

The percentageby which your Park plans to reduce its GHG emissions below base year levels, by a future target year.

“30% reduction in 2006 emissions by 2015”

key goal characteristics
Key Goal Characteristics
  • Low enough to be achievable
  • High enough to stimulate creativity and innovation
  • High enough to really make a difference
slide6

PWR Climate Change Mitigation Plan

  • Meet or exceed the requirements of Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management
  • Meet or exceed the goals of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Federal Green Challenge
  • Become carbon neutral in park operations by 2016
slide7

Reduction Scenarios

E.O. 13423

  • Reduce GHG emissions by reducing energy intensity by 3% annually or by 30% by 2015
    • “Energy Intensity” – energy consumption per gross square foot of building space

Federal Green Challenge

  • Reduce GHG emissions by reducing absolute GHG emissions by 5%

Carbon Neutrality

    • “n%” reduction in GHG emissions by 2016
    • 100%-n purchase of offsets and/or recs
slide8

Establish an Emission Reduction Goal

3 Tiers of Goals:

  • Meeting
    • 20% - 30% in park operations from 2007 by 2016
  • Reaching
    • 30%+ in park operations from 2007 by 2016
    • 10% – 20% all operations from 2007 by 2016
  • Leading
    • Carbon neutral in park operations by 2016
    • 20% + all operations from 2007 by 2016
example goals cfp parks
Example Goals: CFP Parks
  • HAVO - 12.5% below 2006 by 2012 (All opps)
  • ROMO - 17% below 2005 by 2017 (All Opps)
  • BAND - 50% below 2007 by 2012 (Park Opps)*
  • GOGA - Carbon Neutral by 2016 (Park Opps)
  • *Carbon netural by 2016
issues to consider
Issues to Consider
  • How will MORA’s emission profile change? i.e. will emissions increase?
  • Where are emissions coming from?
    • Transportation
    • Energy
    • Solid Waste
