Greenhouse Gas Emissions Studies

Routt County and the City of Steamboat Springs worked with the University of Colorado – Denver to produce a baseline study of Greenhouse Gas Emissions for the year 2005. This baseline study allows comparison of greenhouse gas emissions in future updates.

Routt County partnered with the City of Steamboat Springs to update the GHG Inventory, last updated in 2005. The inventory and report compares data and trends between 2005 and 2018, and examines expected levels of GHG's projected to the year 2050. The report will help inform potential future climate action planning on the part of Routt County, Steamboat Springs, Hayden, Yampa, Oak Creek, and other local stakeholders.
