Climate Action Plan Tracking
About the Data
The data used in this dashboard is extracted from TRAKiT, a web-based system that tracks building permits and projects initialized within the City of Corona. Information presented on this dashboard updates via an automated process every day. The infrastructure used to measure greenhouse gas reductions was created in April 2019 and data appears from any Climate Action Plan-related activities performed on a permit/project after that date.
What are they?
A greenhouse gas is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. Greenhouse gases cause the greenhouse effect. The primary greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. To learn more, visit the EPA's official website.
Corona's Climate Efforts
The City of Corona is committed to providing a more livable, equitable and economically vibrant community through the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By using energy more efficiently, harnessing renewable energy to power our buildings, recycling our waste, and enhancing access to sustainable transportation modes, we can keep dollars in our local economy, create new green jobs and improve community quality of life.

"A greenhouse gas emissions target refers to the emission reduction levels that states set out to achieve by a specified time. Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have implemented statewide greenhouse gas targets. Following the United States announced withdrawal from the Paris Climate agreement, 20 states have committed to upholding the U.S. commitment of reducing emissions 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025 by joining the United States Climate Alliance. California enacted targets in 2005 for reducing emissions: 2000 levels by 2010, 1990 levels by 2020, and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. In 2015, California issued an interim emissions reduction goal of 40% below 1990 levels by 2030."

Consistent with the State's regulations, Corona's goal is to reduce emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020. Formulas for greenhouse reduction goals were provided by LSA. Corona's target is calculated as:
- 15% below 2008 levels by 2020
- 49% below 2008 levels by 2030
- 66% below 2008 levels by 2040
