Since the adoption of the City of Fremont’s first Climate Action Plan in 2012, the City has implemented a number of municipal and public-facing projects, programs, and policies that have resulted in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and earned Fremont regional recognition as a sustainability leader. Fremont is now working to update its Climate Action Plan (CAP) to align with the new 2045 carbon neutrality goal recently established by the Fremont City Council in February 2019.
As part of the CAP update process, the City is seeking the community’s help in identifying actions that will make Fremont a cleaner and healthier place for everyone. Strategies for achieving these goals can include transitioning to renewable and fossil-free energy in buildings and vehicles, enhancing sustainable transit and travel options, reducing waste and pollution, incorporating green building design, restoring natural habitats, drawing down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through plants and trees, and increasing our resilience to climate change.
To gain feedback, the City is inviting the community to complete the Climate Action Plan Update Survey. By taking the survey, the community can play an active role in designing a healthy and sustainable future for Fremont!
