For the second year in a row, Fremont has been recognized as a global leader on environmental action and transparency, achieving a place on CDP’s Cities A List for 2019. The list is available on the CDP website.

CDP is a non-profit environmental disclosure platform that ranks cities from across the globe on how effectively they are managing, measuring, and tackling greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate risks. In their ranking, each city is awarded an A to D score.

Fremont has received an A score for developing robust climate change strategies, tracking and acting to limit and reduce emissions, assessing and mitigating climate risks, and transparently reporting this information in its 2019 disclosure to CDP.

Over 850 cities worldwide reported through CDP’s environmental disclosure platform in 2019. 105 cities received an A score, and in the Bay Area alone, 7 cities were on the A List. Fremont is proud to be one of those cities.

To score an A, a city must have completed a city-wide emissions inventory, established an emissions reduction target, published a climate action plan, and completed a climate adaptation plan to demonstrate how it will tackle climate hazards now and in the future.

According to CDP, all 2019 A List cities demonstrate how municipal governments can safeguard communities and build a climate-safe future.

Fremont is honored to make CDP’s A List and remains committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The City has adopted a resolution to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2045 and is currently working on updating its Climate Action Plan to align with the new goal.

Over the next year, the City will conduct robust outreach, analyze data, evaluate impacts, and engage with the community to identify specific implementation actions for achieving carbon neutrality.

Fremont residents are encouraged to provide input by attending community events, participating in online forums, or sending their ideas directly via email. In addition, residents can stay informed by signing up for the City’s Sustainability email list.
