Climate Action Plan

What is the Climate Action Plan? 

The Climate Action Plan (CAP) is the County’s strategic approach to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources throughout the unincorporated area. The CAP reflects the County’s programs and actions to decrease energy use, improve energy efficiency, develop renewable energy, reduce vehicle miles traveled, increase multi-modal travel options, expand green infrastructure, reduce waste, and improve the efficiency of government operations. The CAP also forecasts the County’s GHG emissions and sets reduction targets and strategies.

Updating the Climate Action Plan

Contra Costa County is updating its Climate Action Plan (CAP), which outlines the actions the County will take to address our changing climate. The public review draft of the 2024 CAP Update is now available on the Envision Contra Costa 2040 website! Comments on the public review draft will be accepted through January 31, 2024. 

In the meantime, we'll be focusing our work in a few key areas.
