Chino with its commitment to sustainability, has achieved its year 2020 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets and is on track to achieve future emissions reductions, in concert with the State of California climate change regulations. The 2020-2030 Climate Action Plan Update provides strategies to guide the City on path to continue achieving its GHG emissions reductions into the year 2030 and beyond, thereby ensuring sustainable and healthy growth.
Chino adopted the 2020 to 2030 Climate Action Plan Update on November 17, 2020, and it goes into effect on January 1, 2021. View the Updated Climate Action Plan (PDF).
Climate Action Plan 2013
Chino adopted the Citywide Climate Action Plan (CAP) in November 2013. The CAP identified strategies to reduce the City's greenhouse (GHG) emissions and enhance sustainability. The CAP provided the GHG emissions inventory for the year 2008, and target for reducing GHG emissions 15% below 2008 levels by 2020. If the CAP is not implemented, emissions in 2020 would be much higher than 2008, as shown in Figure 1: Chino Greenhouse Gas Emissions Forecast Compared to Reduction Goal, 2013 Climate Action Plan.
The CAP implements many of the policies found in the City's General Plan and supports the City's healthy community efforts by improving conditions for pedestrians and cyclists. Some of the local benefits of a CAP for the City include the following:
