Climate Action Plan

Published on: 4/24/2013 4:05 PM

In 2007, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors signed the Cool Counties Climate Stabilization Declaration and established a set of aggressive goals for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions that would reduce the government’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80% before 2050. The Climate Action Plan represents a year-long effort among multiple County agencies, resulting in a set of strategic changes in County operations, facilities and employee behaviors which will facilitate not simply emissions reductions, but water conservation, and decreases in fuel consumption and solid waste volume.​
