The City wants to continue to make Boston healthy, thriving, and innovative. For that reason, climate action is a priority for Mayor Walsh. We promote activities that reduce greenhouse gases, create jobs, and improve quality of life.
We’re also preparing our people and infrastructure for a changing coastline, increasing temperatures, natural disasters, and extreme weather events. For the most up-to-date information on our Climate Action Plan and more, visit our full website:

Greenovate works with the broader community to carry out the City’s Climate Action Plan. This roadmap aims to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020, and to be carbon neutral by 2050. The 2050 goal was recently updated by Mayor Walsh in his 2017 State of the City Address.
We take part in many activities to include all Bostonians in the City’s Climate Action Plan. Our team leads the communications, events, and relationship building with the broader community. The Climate Action Plan goals were created in partnership with local residents, professionals, and scientists.
