Cleveland, Ohio Climate Action Plan

Municipal Sustainability, Community Climate Protection Planning

Brendle Group and Osborn Engineering were part of a team that supported the City of Cleveland’s Office of Sustainability in the development of a Climate Action and Sustainability Plan. This Plan included two distinct phases: (1) a Sustainability Action Plan and greenhouse gas Inventory for the City’s municipal operations; and (2) a community-wide Climate Action Plan and greenhouse gas inventory for Cleveland city proper. Carbon reduction goals were developed and strategies identified to help meet these goals, including estimation of implementation cost, cost savings, and greenhouse gas reductions achieved for each strategy. The Plan also included guidance on implementation, monitoring progress, and communicating the Plan to stakeholders.
