Pitkin County Climate Action Plan
Pitkin County has long been committed to climate action and sustainability to preserve natural resources for current and future generations.
The County recognizes that the changing climate has the potential to significantly affect the environment and the economy. By acting now to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the County can dampen the severity of these impacts.
There are elements of County infrastructure, such as buildings, fleets and the landfill, that generate emissions in the course of providing services to the community. The Pitkin County Climate Action Plan focuses on County agencies and initiatives that can reduce emissions. This plan makes an important contribution to emissions reduction and shows the County’s leadership. The plan was developed to serve as a guide for departments to drive robust and meaningful reductions.
