Raleigh Releases Community Climate Action Plan

City's strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions

The City of Raleigh released its first Community Climate Action Plan (CCAP) on March 2, 2021. The CCAP will guide the broader Raleigh community toward Raleigh City Council’s goal of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.

The Plan addresses greenhouse gas emissions from energy, transportation, and waste in the Raleigh community, and includes strategies to not only reduce emissions, but to build community resilience to climate change and support climate equity.

CCAP identifies local action that the City and community partners can take or directly support, partnerships among local entities, opportunities to coordinate with other agencies, and outreach and education to catalyze individual action.

The City of Raleigh will work with community members, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and other partners to promote the Plan and encourage behavior change.
