Climate Action Planning
What is a Climate Action Plan?
A Climate Action Plan (CAP) is a description of actions—policies, programs, and cost-effective projects—a city can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A CAP may include measures or actions a city has already completed as well as proposed measures a city plans to implement in the future to reduce its carbon footprint. By taking a proactive approach to climate action planning, cities can lower their greenhouse gas emissions, reduce their energy costs, protect air quality and public health, and improve the economy and environment.
