What is the Sustainability Action Plan?
The City of Walnut Creek wants your feedback to shape the new Sustainability Action Plan. The Sustainability Action Plan will provide the City’s vision and strategies to ensure a sustainable and resilient Walnut Creek. The Sustainability Action Plan is based on the current 2012 Climate Action Plan (CAP). The Sustainability Action Plan will continue and strengthen citywide efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change in the short-term, through the year 2030, and in the long-term, out to 2050. This new Plan will look at resilience to climate change as well, helping us understand the threat posed by climate change and how we can stay healthy and safe in a future climate. The Plan will also address other key sustainability topics, such as equity, air pollution, water conservation, and waste.
The Sustainability Action Plan is an opportunity for the community to set new climate goals for the future in response to the State’s new goals to reduce statewide greenhouse gases 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. With the effects of climate change beginning to be seen in our community, the Plan will address public safety by bolstering resiliency to climate-related hazards such as wildfire or flooding. In addition, the Sustainability Action Plan is an opportunity to create a strategic, holistic approach for how the City will address broader issues of environmental sustainability.
