Climate Action Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In response to the climate emergency, the County is developing a Climate Action Plan (CAP) to implement bold climate actions that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The CAP outlines actions, also referred to as measures, to meet State targets and achieve a goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2035-2045. The CAP and associated goals apply to the unincorporated areas of the county and County operations.

CAP measures will also provide important benefits to the environment and our residents. Benefits may include preserving the environment, reducing health disparities, increasing access to green careers, improving quality of life, and advancing environmental and social justice. Community input has been vital to the County's efforts to develop the CAP to date, and we want that to continue.

Draft CAP Public Review

The Draft CAP and Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) were available for public review for 71-days from October 26, 2023 - January 5, 2024. The Draft CAP and its appendices are available for review below. Visit the Draft SEIR webpage to view the environmental documents.
