Green New Deal Dashboard (beta)
Boston’s Green New Deal (GND) is a vision for tackling the climate crisis in Boston — with policies that address economic, social, and racial inequities, while advancing health, livability, and justice throughout our neighborhoods for all Boston residents.
This GND Dashboard serves as a resource to track progress towards advancing Boston as the greenest, most family-friendly city in the country:
- Building Decarbonization: The City is focused on decarbonizing and electrifying new and existing buildings to drastically reduce carbon emissions and promote healthy home and work environments.
- Transportation: We’re committed to ensuring all residents have easy and affordable access to an efficient, carbon-free transportation network.
- Clean Energy: We must purchase and generate renewable energy so we can power our city on carbon-free electricity as soon as possible.
- Resilience & Nature: From rising sea levels to hotter summer days, Boston is already experiencing the impacts of climate change. We are working to strengthen Boston’s 47-mile coast, while ensuring all residents benefit from trees, parks, and nature in our city
- Workforce: The City and our partners in education, labor, and the private sector are developing our green workforce to ensure a just transition to a green economy.
