In 2017, an update to the community greenhouse gas emissions was completed using 2016 data. The inventory showed a 13% drop in emissions in the ten years since 2006.

The biggest reasons for the decrease in emissions are Indiana’s gradual reduction of coal use in electricity generation, decreased energy use in many Bloomington sectors, and the installation of a methane capturing system at the Sycamore Ridge Landfill, which accepts most of Bloomington's trash.
