Presentation overview l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

Key Goal Characteristics

  • Low enough to be achievable

  • High enough to stimulate creativity and innovation

  • High enough to really make a difference


Slide6 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

Issues to Consider

  • How will MORA’s emission profile change? i.e. will emissions increase?

  • Where are emissions coming from?

    • Transportation

    • Energy

    • Solid Waste

      and Other
