Climate Action Plan Goals & Metrics for Community Outreach

CAP community iconTurning Berkeley’s climate plan into climate action rests on more than just ideas and good intentions. It requires Berkeley residents, businesses, the city government, and other institutions to urgently rise to the challenge of making big changes – changes in our infrastructure, technological advances, and changes in the decisions we make every day as members of the Berkeley community. Everyone must play a role.
