Greenhouse Gas Inventory:
This evaluation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the Town of Newfield, New York, from 2019, serves as a preliminary step in creating strategies to reduce GHG emissions. It is important for local governments to understand their town emission levels and their impacts as it allows them to prioritize actions when creating a local Climate Action Plan to mitigate the effect of these emissions.
This Greenhouse Gas Inventory was prepared as a component of the Town of Newfield’s participation in the Climate Smart Communities program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Communities that have been certified as Climate Smart Communities are committed to reducing GHG emissions and improving climate resilience, which allows them to reduce long-term costs and adapt to a changing climate.
