Between September 2016 and February 2018, the City of Oakland worked with Bloomberg Associates Sustainability Practice to identify opportunities and measure the impact of deep GHG reductions, utilizing a new climate planning tool called CURB. Oakland is the first city in North America to use the tool in depth as a key input to its climate planning. Both the Executive Summary and the full CURB Report are available for download and review.
