Upcoming Climate Action Plan Community Meetings

Climate Action Plan Graphic

Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Office of Sustainability are in the process of developing Houston’s first community-wide Climate Action Plan. A Climate Action Plan provides evidenced-based measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and preventative measures to address the negative outcomes of climate change. After three 500-year floods in as many years culminating with the largest rain event in North American history, climate change is an unprecedented challenge for Houston.

Developing a Climate Action Plan allows the City to develop strategies that will not only help minimize the City’s carbon footprint but can help save money and improve the quality of life of residents. The Plan will demonstrate how the City will adapt and improve its resilience to climate hazards that impact the city today as well as risks that may increase in the coming years. Co-benefits associated with climate action planning include decreased traffic and congestion, improved air quality, better access to parks and green spaces, and cost savings through energy efficiency projects.

Stakeholder and citizen engagement is an important part of this process. Additional meetings may be added, for updates please visit: http://greenhoustontx.gov/climateactionplan/ or email: greenhouston@houstontx.gov.
