Why it's important to the region

Where we live and how we move around play a crucial role in achieving regional greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for 2020 and 2050. Reducing smog-forming pollutants protects the health of vulnerable residents.

Buildings and cars account for 65% of the region’s greenhouse gas emissions. A compact urban area reduces driving and encourages the development of more energy efficient buildings to further reduce per capita emissions of both greenhouse gases and smog-forming pollutants.
