Two years after adoption of the Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan, Version 2.0, Pittsburgh Climate Initiative is pleased to announce that 23 of the 35 Community chapter recommendations have been completed or are in progress. More than thirty organizations are currently involved in implementing these recommendations.
The Community chapter recommendations were generated through a series of open public meetings held in the summer of 2007, ranging from home energy improvements to green space development. While some of the accomplishments are more visible (planting 20,000 trees or improving the City’s bike infrastructure), others are more subtle (expanding the City’s recycling center drop-off hours or advocating for efficient energy codes).
All of the recommendations in the plan relate directly to actions or policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Pittsburgh. Click here to access the report, and visit our Resources page to access PCAP v. 2.0.
