Committee Background and Charge
The Town of Concord has ambitious goals to mitigate our impact on climate change by reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 25% by 202 and 80% by 2050. These goals were approved at the 2017 Annual Town Meeting and align Concord with the goals set in the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act and the Paris Climate Accord. Click here for additional details on Concord's sustainability and climate goals.
The Climate Action Advisory Board (CAAB) was established to advise and provide strategic direction to the Director of Sustainability and the Town on how to meet its climate goals. The purpose, charge, and membership is intentionally broad. Addressing climate change in Concord will require both mitigation (reducing our GHG emissions) and adaptation (ensuring we are resilient to impacts due climate change).
Climate actions cut across boards, committees, departments, agencies, and community groups. Working with the Town, CAAB will seek to reduce barriers, and prioritize policies, programs, and initiatives that will advance climate action in all sectors, residential, commercial and municipal, in Concord.
