Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory
In 2007-2008, Fremont partnered with StopWaste.Org and ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability to evaluate the greenhouse gas emissions from City facilities, and the Fremont community. Emissions from City facilities and operations consist of about 1% of the total emissions in Fremont.  Fremont's first Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory using a 2005 baseline, is available for review. 

City of Fremont Actions to Reduce GHG Emissions
The City organization has been working to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in a variety of ways, such as energy efficient lighting retrofits in City buildings and the replacement of fossil fuel-powered vehicles in the City's fleet with alternative fuel vehicles.  The City is also increasing recycling and composting at City facilities, and purchasing goods made from recycled-content materials.

Green Task Force
In 2008, the Mayor formed a Green Task Force of citizens to identify ways that Fremont could reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Read the Task Force's 20 recommendations and staff's response.  A number of the Task Force's recommendations have been included in the Climate Action Plan.
