San Diego’s landmark 2022 Climate Action Plan (CAP) has been unanimously approved by the City Council.
With this CAP, the City of San Diego continues to take bold steps toward a more sustainable and thriving place to live, work and play. The new CAP establishes a community-wide goal of net zero by 2035, committing San Diego to an accelerated trajectory for greenhouse gas reductions. Achieving net-zero emissions will improve the air we breathe, the communities we live in and our overall quality of life.
More than 4,000 San Diegans shared their needs, concerns and priorities in the development of this plan. The City is advancing your vision for climate action by charting a path to decarbonize San Diego’s buildings and support the re-envisioning of San Diego’s transportation landscape. The City is leading by example by modernizing our operations and mitigating our impacts to the fullest extent.
