General announcement

New greenhouse gas emissions data available for northeastern Illinois communities

The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s (CMAP) newly updated greenhouse gas emissions inventory shows that between 2010 and 2019, overall greenhouse gas emissions in northeastern Illinois decreased by 9 percent. While this is progress, the region has a shared goal of reduce emissions by 5 percent annually through 2050.

For the first time, CMAP produced individualized data summaries by county, community, and Chicago neighborhood that provide a snapshot of emissions from the building, transportation, and waste sectors. Local governments, sustainability committees, and others are encouraged to use this data to develop local climate action plans.

In ON TO 2050, the comprehensive plan for northeastern Illinois, CMAP set a goal for the region to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent, relative to 2005 levels, by 2050. This target aligns with the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming to below 2° Celsius (3.7° Fahrenheit).
