Storing & Offsetting Carbon Emissions
Forests, parks, agricultural lands and open space serve as “carbon sinks” by storing greenhouse gas emissions that otherwise contribute to climate change.
Storing & Offsetting Carbon Emissions Goals
- Preserve and enhance forests, parks, street trees, open space and other natural systems that act as carbon “sinks.”
- Promote local sustainable agriculture to reduce carbon emissions associated with food production, processing, and transport.
- Offset carbon emissions through carbon credits or allowances.
