 The 2020 Inventory shows that as a community, Fort Collins is 24% below 2005 levels. Like everything in people’s lives during 2020, greenhouse gas emissions were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This report gives an overview of these impacts, other changes in the inventory, and highlights some key successes.
