Climate Recovery Ordinance Goals

The Climate Recovery Ordinance includes four ambitious goals - two community goals and two City operations goals.


Community Goals

  • Reduce community fossil fuel use by 50% of 2010 levels by 2030
  • Reduce total community greenhouse gas emissions to an amount that is no more than the city of Eugene's average share of a global atmospheric greenhouse gas level of 350 ppm by 2100, which was estimated in 2016 to require an annual average emission reduction level of 7.6%

City Operation Goals

  • All City of Eugene owned facilities and operations shall be carbon neutral by 2020, meaning no net release of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduce the City of Eugene's use of fossil fuels by 50% compared to 2010 usage
