Climate Action Plan
For The Eagle County Community
The Climate Action Plan 2020 Update establishes county-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction targets
This plan calls for:
- Immediate emergency-grade action on climate
- Prioritization of strategies within this plan update to immediately reduce carbon emissions
- Timely achievement of carbon pollution reduction goals
- Commitment to a healthier and more resilient future for our Eagle County community
With our Climate Action Collaborative partners, we have established a framework to strategize and deliver on greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions within the Buildings, Materials Management, Energy Supply, and Transportation sectors, as well as mechanisms to enhance efforts for education and outreach, water conservation, and carbon sequestration.
The priority actions identified in this Climate Action Plan update were selected through collaborative stakeholder input in 2020. The actions were derived from GHG modeling conducted by the CAC in 2020 and the original Climate Action Plan for the Eagle County Community. The emissions reduction goal in this update was established in 2020 to align with the State of Colorado GHG emission reduction goal and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change global GHG reduction target.
