Climate Action Plan

Climate Action Plan

A group of over 30 stakeholders worked together during 2016 to develop the Climate Action Plan for the Eagle County Community. Since the plan was completed, it has been adopted by the Eagle County Board of County Commissioners, the towns of Avon, Basalt, Eagle, Minturn, and Vail, and by the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District.

The Climate Action Plan recommends county-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction targets of 25 percent by 2025 and 80 percent by 2050 from the Eagle County 2014 baseline inventory.

The collaborative stakeholder group will continue to convene regularly to implement the goals and strategies recommended in the Climate Action Plan and monitor success. Five sector-based working groups have formed: Education and Outreach, Residential Buildings, Commercial Buildings and Industrial, Transportation and Mobility, and Materials Management and Waste Reduction.

The Eagle County Board of County Commissioners has contracted Walking Mountains Science Center to serve as project manager to convene and facilitate this community-wide project. View the Climate Action Plan for the Eagle County Community.

Climate Action Pledge

The county asks all residents to commit to personal actions that support the Climate Action Plan goal to cut climate pollution in Eagle County 25 percent by 2025. Achieving the goal requires that we change how we use materials and energy, and every action counts. Take the pledge!
