It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. After a year of hard work and community engagement , Mayor Walsh today released the Greenovate Boston 2014 Climate Action Plan Update. While this Plan celebrates the City’s climate progress, it’s also about looking forward with long term goals and targets, especially for climate preparedness.
Over the next month, we’ll be highlighting different parts of the Plan – from how we plan on implementing the plan, to tracking our progress online, to a yet-to-be unveiled neighborhood green map.
But to start, here’s an infographic to show you Boston’s goals and targets for GHG reductions by 2020.
The 2014 CAP Update celebration will take place tonight at Artists for Humanity’s EpiCenter. Members of the Climate Action Plan will join Mayor Walsh in presenting the Plan, along with incoming Chief of Environment Energy and Open Space, Austin Blackmon.
There will be a special performance by Guster, and in honor of the band’s commitment to the environment, Mayor Walsh will declare today, January 15, Guster Day. We hope to see you at the event! For those of you who can’t make it, follow us at @GreenovateBoston for tweets and pictures from the event!
Thanks again to everyone who has made both the Climate Action Plan and the Launch Celebration possible.
