Fremont Scores an A Grade in Climate Change Ranking

CDP A List 2018 Stamp

CDP, the non-profit environmental disclosure platform, released its first ever cities ranking featuring cities from across the globe that are taking bold action to curb climate change.

Of the 625 cities that reported worldwide through CDP’s environmental disclosure platform in 2018, just 43 cities received an “A” score for how effectively they are managing, measuring and tackling greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate risks. Fremont is proud to be one of the 9 Bay Area cities that made the A List for climate leadership and action.

According to CDP, all 2018 A List cities demonstrate strong climate adaptation and mitigation strategies, allow for consistent tracking of city emissions, and set forth ambitious targets to cut these emissions.

Fremont is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and taking action to make our community more resilient to climate change. To that end, the City recently adopted an ambitious goal 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 community stakeholders to identify specific implementation actions for achieving carbon neutrality.

Fremont residents are encouraged to join the conversation and provide input by attending public meetings, participating in online forums, or sending their ideas via email. Interested individuals can receive updates by signing up for the City’s Sustainability email list.
