Path to Zero Emissions (DRAFT)

Public Review Draft: Path to Zero Emissions—Creating a Sustainable Carlisle

The Sustainability Goals Subcommittee of the Carlisle Energy Task Force prepared this report to:

  • Help Carlisle residents understand the benefits and implications of adopting and pursuing goals to reduce Carlisle’s greenhouse gas emissions
  • Help the Master Plan Steering Committee solicit input on the community’s level of support for adopting and pursuing emissions reduction goals.

The report documents Carlisle’s first community-wide estimate of greenhouse gas emissions (broken down by sector and fuel type), identifies options for greenhouse gas reduction goals, and outlines a conceptual approach for reaching such goals.

We welcome your comments and suggestions on this review draft (please see instructions below).
