Portland carbon emissions down 26 percent since 1990
“Portlanders now have more low-carbon options to get to school and to work, more efficient ways to heat and power their homes and new ways to deal with household waste.”
A report from the city’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and Multnomah County Office of Sustainability noted that national carbon emissions have risen by almost 12 percent over the same period.
The departments issued their findings in a report on the city and county’s Climate Action Plan at Wednesday’s Portland City Council meeting.
The city and county hope to reduce carbon emissions overall by 40 percent by 2030.
