Concord’s climate goals of reducing community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 25% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 were established at 2017 Annual Town Meeting.

A greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory is the standard approach to measuring community-wide GHG emissions. Concord's most recent GHG Inventory is for the year 2019. This inventory was completed in March 2021. Two previous GHG inventories were conducted for years 2008 and 2016 using the Global Protocol for Cities.
