Marin County Partners Launch App to Track Sustainability
Sustainable City Network, March 4, 2015
A partnership of 16 jurisdictions in Marin County has launched a new interactive sustainability tracker illustrating progress being made by local governing bodies, residents and businesses toward reducing emissions and increasing sustainable practices.
The Marin Sustainability Tracker includes 12 metrics gauging a community’s level of consumption and implementation of sustainability measures related to energy, waste, transportation, water and greenhouse gas reductions.
The Marin Climate and Energy Partnership was created in 2007 to address various energy and climate-related issues on a county-wide basis. The partners include 11 cities, three public utilities, a transportation authority and the county itself.
The interactive map allows a user to see how a city or town is doing in comparison to other local jurisdictions over time and provides additional information on how each member of the community can take further action to help reduce emissions and meet California’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020.
