Climate Action




The 2013 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 actions outlined in the plan, split into several focus areas.


Currently, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability is convening a 90-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 Update for 2018.
