Climate Action Plan

Climate Action Plan

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are changing the climate in ways that threaten the vitality, livability, and prosperity of the Everett community. The City of Everett is projected to encounter changes in temperature, rain, and snowfall, sea level, and flooding frequency.

The City is committed to reducing local GHG emissions. The City recently adopted a community-level Climate Action Plan (CAP), which builds on the City’s past successes and strengths in other planning and implementation efforts and sets new targets, a 50% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 and an 80% reduction by 2050, to protect the wellbeing of its residents for decades to come. The community-level CAP is the first of its kind for the City of Everett. It provides a long-term vision and strategic roadmap for reducing GHG emissions and preparing for climate change in the City. The CAP represents the first phase of an ongoing and evolving process.
