Action on Climate

Action on Climate

Once we start to act, hope is everywhere

Climate Change is the most defining crisis of our time, affecting all of us and all life we share the earth with.

In early 2020, the City of Burlington established a Climate Action Plan following up on the climate emergency it declared a year earlier, joining cities around the world in recognizing the necessity to act with urgency on this global crisis.

The City’s Climate Action Plan charts a path forward to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Burlington and we know that it will take all of us fortunate to live and work in this city actively adopting greener practices if we are to achieve the shared goal of ensuring a healthy, livable, resilient community.
