Help Update the County’s Climate Action Plan

Contra Costa County is updating its Climate Action Plan, which outlines the actions the County will take to address our changing climate. The public review draft of the 2024 Climate Action Plan Update is now available on the Envision Contra Costa 2040 website

We had originally set a comment period end date of January 31, 2024. However, this comment period is being extended to align with the comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which assesses the potential impacts on the environment that could result from adopting and implementing the 2045 General Plan and 2024 CAP. The comment period for the Draft Climate Action Plan 2024 Update has been extended to Monday, April 8, 2024 at 5:00 pm

In the meantime, we'll be focusing our work in a few key areas. Learn more by reading our Interim Climate Action Work Plan for 2023-2024 (PDF). 

We held several meetings in September and October, 2019 to learn about community goals and strategies to reduce pollution emissions in our County and be more resilient. Visit the Envision Contra Costa 2040 webpage to find presentations, information for the Climate Action Plan update, and to submit your ideas.
