PCC’s Climate Action Plan Update, January 2020 (view full size). Email sustainability@pcc.edu to receive this document in an alternate format.

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 CAP 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.

We are working with the firm GreenerU to assist in updating the Climate Action Plan. This planning process will align with the college’s strategic planning efforts. More info for ways to engage can be found below and we will be updating details and opportunities regularly. You can also email us at sustainability@pcc.edu to receive updates via email and learn more about PCC’s Commitment to Climate Action.


Below is our anticipated timeline for 2020, though this schedule is subject to change.

  • February – March: Data gathering and current state assessment
  • April – June: Main stakeholder engagement
  • June – October: Drafting of Climate Action Plan
  • October – December: Opportunity for feedback and finalizing of 2020 Climate Action Plan
