City of Boulder, Colorado Climate Commitment
Taking Community Climate Protection to the Next Level
Brendle Group will be assisting the City of Boulder as they develop the City's renewed Climate Action Commitment, including refining the structure and focus, defining and quantifying overarching long-term goals and integrated focus area goals. Brendle Group will also be assisting with community engagement and partnerships related to climate action.
Boulder’s Climate Commitment is the city’s integrated planning initiative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from both city operations and in the community at large. This initiative, which builds on the Climate Action plans developed initially in 2004 and updated in 2006, 2009 and 2010, integrates climate action elements into all departmental master plans. In July 2013, council provided preliminary direction to significantly expand the goal for the program - to formulate a strategy to achieve 80 percent GHG reductions below 1990 levels by 2050.
