Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Toolkit
The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Toolkit is designed to help local jurisdictions identify and explore the kinds of actions and programs they can undertake to reduce vehicle emissions, as well as meet other community goals, such as spur economic development, increase biking and walking, support downtowns, create healthy livable communities, and more.
Each Strategy Report describes an action, program or policy which can be implemented by a jurisdiction. The report gives an overview of what it is, how it can benefit a community, how costly it is implement (and how long it takes to see results), and gives examples of where it has been used. The reports are an entry point to a topic, and intended as a tool for planners to explore and communicate about the strategies described.
The Case Studies in the Toolkit explore the strategies more deeply and show on the ground examples within Oregon where they have been used. They illustrate the benefit of multiple strategies used together, and show how collaboration and patience are used to achieve results.
To use the Toolkit, using the menu box on the right, you can browse by categories that group the strategies into common community goals and objectives, or search alphabetically.
