Climate Action Plan

Working Together

Global climate change is a challenge with far-reaching implications for Albuquerque. It is also an opportunity for our community to prosper in a sustainable manner.

How it Started

In the summer of 2008, City leaders appointed over 60 Albuquerqueans, all volunteers, to the Climate Action Task Force. Their assignment was to design strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050.

What is the Goal?

  • The purpose behind the Climate Action Task Force is to make recommendations that are aimed at reducing local greenhouse gas emissions.

Who Makes up the CATF?

  • The Climate Action Task Force are volunteers made up of environmentalists, engineers, scientists, business professionals, political action groups, government staff, and a wide range of expertise and opinions hopefully able to represent a cross section of the Albuquerque Demographics.
  • The Plan has been reviewed by peer groups and Administration conducted ten town hall meetings throughout the city and obtained broader comments on the plan from the community.

What's Next?

  • Following the incorporation of community input, the plan will be submitted to City Council.
