In 2009, the City of Woodland was named a Climate Action Leader by the California Climate Action Registry, when we finished the process of calculating, reporting, and getting third-party verification of our 2007 green house gas (GHG) emissions. The GHG emissions inventories for 2008 and subsequent years will be compared with this "baseline" to determine how well the City is doing in helping to meet state GHG reduction goals. Woodland is one of only 17 California cities to be accorded Climate Action Leader status.
The California Climate Action Registry is a private non-profit organization originally formed by the State of California. The California Registry has provided leadership on climate change by developing and promoting credible, accurate, and consistent GHG reporting standards and tools for organizations to measure, monitor, obtain third-party verification, and reduce their GHG emissions consistently across industry sectors and geographical borders. The California Registry started with 23 Charter Members and currently has a membership of over 340 of the world's largest and leading corporations, universities, cities and counties, government agencies, and environmental organizations that are working together to address climate change by voluntarily measuring, monitoring, and publicly reporting their GHG emissions using the California Registry’s protocols.
