Eugene Climate Recovery Ordinance

Resiliency, Roadmaps

The city of Eugene aims to cut in half community fossil fuel use by 2030. Its climate action goals focus on reducing carbon pollution relative to historic levels. The city recognizes the need to reduce carbon pollution to at or below 350 parts per million in the atmosphere. The 2016 updated Climate Recovery Ordinance sets a goal to have Eugene’s emission levels at a 350 ppm level by 2100. At the municipal level, Eugene is targeting carbon neutral city operations by 2020. This is to be mainly achieved by an overall 55% reduction in GHG emissions from 2005 levels by 2020, with emissions offsets covering the gap between that reduction and all the way to net zero.
