In August 2017, Missoula County completed its first Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory for County Operations. The Inventory was authored by Energy Corps-AmeriCorps member Erika Barnett and advised by a Greenhouse Gas Technical Advisory Group of community experts convened by the County. The Inventory found that Missoula County operations emitted a total of 6,810 metric tons of CO2 equivalent in 2016, of which 40% came from county buildings and facilities, 30% from the vehicle fleet, 21% from employee commute, and 9% from water and wastewater treatment facilities. With this information in hand, the county is now beginning the process of developing a strategic plan to reduce its contribution to climate change.
