Climate Action Plan

Howard County was the sec­ond county in the coun­try to sign on to the U.S. Mayor’s Cli­mate Pro­tec­tion Agree­ment. As part of our com­mit­ment, Howard County com­pleted a green­house gas inven­tory of County oper­a­tions and the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity and com­mit­ted to reduc­ing emis­sions by 7%.

In 2010, the Howard County Cli­mate Action Plan sum­ma­rized the results of the 2008 green­house gas inven­tory and pre­sented reduc­tion goals and future actions to reduce emis­sions County-wide.

The County exceeded the goal of reduc­ing emis­sions from County gov­ern­ment facil­i­ties by 7% below 2007 lev­els by 2012. We expect this will be reduced even more in the com­ing years through increased energy effi­ciency efforts.
