Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Mitigation Strategies in Santa Barbara County.

Greenhouse gas “mitigation” in this context means reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) to address increases from specific land-use projects or as part of local climate action plans. Because GHGs are a global pollutant, mitigation can potentially occur anywhere in the world to offset locally generated GHG emissions. However, local mitigation efforts could achieve additional local benefits. 

For land-use projects, the District’s role under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is to review projects to be approved by lead agencies (usually, the city governments or County government) and assess whether air quality impacts have been adequately evaluated and mitigated. The District recommends that lead agencies prioritize GHG mitigations to occur first on site, then near the site, then within California, and, only if other options have been exhausted, outside of California.
