With climate change, Concord is projected to experience more rain, flooding, droughts, extreme heat, high winds — all of which impact public health. Resilience in Concord is preserving our valued resources today and preparing for the impacts of tomorrow.
The Town of Concord has a long history of sustainability. We have ambitious climate and sustainability goals, including a long-term goal of reducing community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80% by 2050 in alignment with the Paris Climate Accord and the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act.
Working with town departments, committees, residents, partners and businesses, Concord’s Sustainability Division is responsible for developing and implementing programs, policies and initiatives to achieve the Town’s climate and sustainability goals.
Sustainability is a team effort. Let's work together to create a sustainable Concord.
