The City of Eugene is a national municipal leader in climate change policy, planning, and action. From the City’s work to develop the Sustainable Business Initiative in 2006, to the development of its first Community Climate Action Plan, to the adoption of its Climate Recovery Ordinance (CRO), Eugene continues to push forward in taking steps to address climate change.
In 2010, Eugene created its first Community Climate and Energy Action Plan, joining a growing list of forward-thinking cities around the world that are addressing climate change and energy challenges through dedicated planning efforts.
In 2014 the Eugene City Council took national leadership on climate action by adopting the Climate Recovery Ordinance, updated in 2016 to include some of the strongest greenhouse gas emission reduction goals in the nation.
Now the City of Eugene has updated the Climate and Energy Action Plan - the Climate Action Plan 2.0.
