The City of Fremont is dedicated to SUSTAINABILITY—the ability of the current generation to meet its needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Fremont's sustainability efforts work to address the looming threat of human-induced climate change by encouraging resource conservation measures, reducing environmental pollutants, and developing in harmony with nature.
Response to Climate Change
In 2012, the City of Fremont adopted its first Climate Action Plan, providing a roadmap for achieving our stringent community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goal of 25% by 2020 from a 2005 baseline.
With 2020 fast approaching, in February 2019 Fremont City Council adopted a Carbon Neutrality Resolution, setting a 55% GHG emissions reduction target from 2005 levels by 2030 and a goal to achieve long term carbon neutrality by 2045.
Fremont is now working to update its Climate Action Plan to align with this new 2045 carbon neutrality goal. Soon, the City will be asking community members to share feedback on ways to help identify actions that will make our community a cleaner and healthier place for everyone. Stay tuned!
