CFP Action Plan - Transportation
Reduce park operations'
transportation emissions to
20 percent below 2007 levels by 2020.
In 2007, mobile combustion from visitors accounts for 82 percent of Cape Cod National Seashore's total mobile combustion emissions of 2,304 MTCO2E. This emissions source presents both a significant challenge but also a unique opportunity to impact emissions beyond the park boundaries by coordinating with regional transportation systems and partnering with regional transportation organizations.
