LOR FOUNDATION PROVIDES GRANT FOR SPECIALIST TO COMPLETE GREENHOUSE
GAS INVENTORY FOR THE CITY OF LANDER’S PUBLIC WORK FACILITIES.
Lander, WY – The LOR Foundation has awarded the Lander Climate Action Network (LCAN) with a grant totaling $22,680 to support contracted services for a greenhouse gas inventory specialist to complete a greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory for the City of Lander’s public work facilities. LCAN will contribute an additional $5,000 in support of this greenhouse gas inventory work.
The part-time professional, who will be contracted by LCAN in the coming weeks, will engage directly with City staff, the City’s Environmental and Energy Task Force, and other stakeholders in order to plan and implement the GHG inventory. The grant was pursued by LCAN whose mission is “to reduce carbon emissions in Lander through a commitment to renewable resources, community engagement, and economic viability.”
A GHG inventory is a comprehensive story of an organization or entity’s energy usage, translating various units of energy into one comparable term — carbon dioxide equivalents. This inventory will play an essential role in helping the city identify and prioritize actions to reduce its greenhouse gas footprint and save on utility costs. It will also play an essential role in the development of energy efficient goals in the future.
LCAN co-founder, Ariel Greene, said: “The greenhouse gas inventory is the first step in an educational process for the city and its citizens. As we take a third-party assessment of the city’s systems and facilities, we will learn how we can make the best use of our financial, energy, and human resources.”
LCAN is now seeking applications for qualified individuals to perform this work as an independent contractor. The work under the LOR Foundation grant is intended to be completed by October 2022.
