Description:The Community Carbon Footprint and Roadmap to Reduction is the latest effort among Park City’s many initiatives to address climate change. Among many other initiatives are Park City Municipal’s Environmental Strategic Plan to guide the community’s comprehensive sustainability efforts; Park City’s signing of the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement; community engagements such as Save Our Snow; efforts to reduce Park City Municipal’s own GHG footprint of internal government operations and the many projects and programs lead by Park City’s many environmental non-profits To develop the Community Carbon Footprint, Park City’s GHG emissions were calculated for the baseline year of 2007 as well as for 2005 as a supplemental year, with the aim to compile a complete, consistent, accurate, and transparent inventory using accepted methodologies. Specifically, the inventory draws on well reviewed and accepted methodologies from the International Standards Organization (ISO)14064-1, The Climate Registry (TCR), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and methodologies implemented in ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability’s Clean Air and Climate Protection (CACP) software. The fundamental design of the inventory is based on the guidelines of ISO14064-1 with additional guidance from ICLEI’s International Local Government Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis Protocol to address issues specific to conducting community inventories. The footprint includes the following GHGs: 1. carbon dioxide (CO2), 2. methane (CH4), 3. nitrous oxide (N2O), 4. perfluorocarbons (PFCs), 5. hydroflurocarbons (HFCs), and 6. sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).
