Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Toolkit

The Greenhouse Gas, or GHG, Emissions Reduction Toolkit is a collection of strategy reports and case studies designed to help local jurisdictions identify and explore the kinds of actions and programs they can undertake to reduce vehicle emissions. Additionally, they are designed to meet other community goals, such as spur economic development, increase biking and walking, support downtowns, create healthy livable communities and more.

Strategy Reports

Each strategy report describes an action, program or policy which can be implemented by a jurisdiction. The reports give an overview of:

  • What each strategy is.
  • How it can benefit a community.
  • How costly it is to implement.
  • Examples of where it has been used.

The case studies in the GHG Toolkit explores the strategies more deeply and show on the ground examples within Oregon where they have been used.
