Carbon Neutral by 2050
The City of Boise just set a bold climate action goal of being completely carbon neutral by 2050. The city is committed to taking action to address climate change, because our city’s prosperity is directly linked to clean energy, clean air and water, and open space. Climate action isn’t just an environmental issue, it’s a public health and economic development necessity. Climate action is about creating green jobs and a new economy for the future while protecting the health of all Boiseans. By harnessing innovation, and the passion of the next generation, Boise will be a national climate leader.
The recently developed Climate Action Roadmap provides a clear path forward to reaching carbon neutrality. The roadmap focuses on both cutting greenhouse gas emissions and building resiliency so our city can adapt to climate changes in our region.
