Climate Action




The Cleveland Climate Action Plan contains an overarching greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goal of 80% reduction below 2010 emissions by 2050, with interim goals of 16% reduction by 2020 and 40% reduction by 2030. The goals are designed to be bold yet achievable. Goals will be achieved through implementation of the 33 actions outlined in the plan, split into 6 focus areas.


The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability convened a 50-member Climate Action Advisory Committee with representatives of leading Cleveland organizations from the commercial, industrial, educational, government, and non-profit sectors to inform and create the Climate Action Plan.
