The Climate Action Dashboard includes overall metrics pages for both emissions reduction and resilience. Additionally, the dashboard includes sector-specific pages for metrics relating to Buildings, Energy Supply, Transportation, Waste, and Natural Resources, as well as metrics associated with Community Services.
