Climate Equity Plan: What Does It Mean for Austin?

An Austin Energy Green Building Webinar

Climate Equity Plan

Austin’s Climate Equity Plan was created with input from nearly 200 community members with an intentional focus on engaging racially and economically diverse residents about the challenges, barriers, and opportunities facing historically excluded groups. The Austin Climate Equity Plan includes the bold and aggressive goal of equitably reaching net-zero community-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 with a strong emphasis on cutting emissions by 2030. Learn how an equity tool helped account for outcomes related to health, affordability, accessibility, community capacity, cultural preservation, accountability, and a just transition to green jobs.
