Measuring Up 2015: How US Cities Are Accelerating Progress Toward National Climate Goals

The most extensive national report of its kind, Measuring Up 2015: How Local Leadership Can Accelerate National Climate Goals analyzes data from 116 US cities representing more than 14 percent of the US population, and includes in-depth case studies of four communities: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, and Portland, Ore.

The data and city profiles demonstrate that local governments can cut greenhouse gas emissions, reduce climate threats, and achieve multiple community goals like lower energy costs, better air quality, improved health, and enhanced economic development.
