2020 Climate Action Plan
PCC has made significant strides in our climate action progress and now it is time to update our 2013 Climate Action Plan (CAP). In addition to building off the progress we have already made, the updated 2020 Climate Action Plan will advance climate justice by setting science-based targets for carbon neutrality, addressing local inequities exacerbated by climate change, emphasizing resiliency, and centering equity both in the engagement process and mitigation strategies.
