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.
