Erie County Climate Action is Erie County’s green initiative to develop an equity-centered Community Climate Action Plan. The Plan will identify actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help the community adapt to our changing climate.

The plan will also set goals following the NYS Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA). Press here to visit the New York State Climate Act website and learn about this aggressive legislation.
