 Q2 Progress

Reported March 2022

The combined building and energy sectors account for the highest percentage of GHG emissions in Dallas (64%). In FY 21-22, 10 actions from this sector will be initiated, with 38 identified milestones. These actions include expansion of existing programs and efforts, as well as updates to existing codes and ordinances. Implementation of these milestones will involve collaboration between the following City departments:

  • Building Services​

  • Housing & Neighborhood Revitalization

  • Planning & Urban Design

Note: Actions marked as ongoing span multiple fiscal years, meaning efforts will be carried out continuously and therefore will not be marked complete until the end of this fiscal year.


Year Two Work Plan
