Climate Action Plan Committee

The Climate Action Plan (CAP) Committee is actively involved with cities that are creating or updating their Climate Action Plans and implementation strategies. Climate Action Plans are the key planning document that guides municipal efforts to drastically reduce carbon emissions over the next 30 years.

The CAP committee advocates a broad range of climate policies designed to reduce carbon emissions in energy, transportation, and solid waste, as well as sustainable urban design and land use. Specific policies we support include Community Choice Energy, affordable housing and higher density near transit corridors, and diversion of organic waste from the landfill. We work with our Climate Hub partners to advance sustainable policies throughout the region, including ensuring social equity and good green jobs.
