Climate Action Planning

San Mateo County Climate Action Plan

County Climate Action Planning

The County has two Climate Action Plans currently in place – a Government Operations Climate Action Plan and a Community Climate Action Plan. At the Office of Sustainability, we’re responsible for updating and implementing both Plans, ensuring that the County meets its GHG emissions reduction commitments.

The Plans present the history of our emissions since 2005 and charts our course for reducing those emissions between now and 2045. When finished, they will also feature a plan for how the unincorporated County can adapt to the effects of climate change.
