Easton Climate Action

Municipal Operations

City of Easton is directly responsible for a subset of total community emissions resulting from government buildings, City of Easton fleet vehicles, and management of city-owned land. The actions listed in this section not only reduce the portion of community emissions attributable to city operations, but also present opportunities for the City of Easton to model best practices for cutting emissions and maximizing co-benefits.

Commercial Buildings

Energy consumed in commercial buildings account for 26% of the City of Easton’s total GHG emissions. Improving the efficiency of our commercial building stock and reducing the energy demand will contribute significantly to achieving City of Easton’s greenhouse gas reduction target. More here.

Residential Buildings

Energy consumed in residential buildings accounts for 45% of the City of Easton’s total GHG emissions. Improving the efficiency of our residential building stock will contribute significantly to achieving City of Easton’s greenhouse gas reduction target, while saving residents money on utility bills and reducing the need for new infrastructure.

Energy Production

Broadly speaking, the use of fossil fuels for energy (including electricity, heating, transportation, and other uses) is the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Fossil fuels still supply a considerable share of energy for electricity, heating, transportation, and other energy-producing uses. Energy Production is a cross-cutting sector in that nearly all activities that take place in the community require energy of some sort. More here.
