      Vision for Carbon Neutral
     The Pacific West Region will be
      carbon neutral in its operations.
    Achieving carbon neutrality will require the reduction
    of carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases
    through energy conservation, an increase in
    renewable energy, and an increase in park carbon
    sequestration.
