BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The City of Cape Canaveral will begin the process of developing its first municipal greenhouse gas inventory in order to create a baseline to measure the success of sustainability-based projects and better understand the City’s impacts on the environment.
Called the AF + R2C Climate Cohort, this is a recently established initiative through Audubon Florida, the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council, and ICLEI that involves 18 local and county governments, including Cape Canaveral.
An intern from either the Florida Institute of Technology, Stetson University, and the University of Central Florida has been assigned to each participating government entity via funding provided by Audubon Florida, making this a zero-cost endeavor for the City.
This internship program will run until late April, at which point the City will accept a comprehensive greenhouse gas emissions report that focuses on the City’s energy usage, wastewater logistics, vehicle fleet, and solid waste stream.
Findings will also be used to develop a larger scale greenhouse gas inventory for the East Central Florida area.
