PHOENIX, AZ — The City of Phoenix is asking the community to give feedback on the draft Climate Action Plan for everyone concerned about climate change and its impact on the air, temperatures and water quality.

The proposed plan discusses the difficulties posed by climate change and the measures residents can take to help make Phoenix a more sustainable city.

"This plan will be made stronger through community input and ideas, and achieving the goals set forth will require cross-sector and community-wide participation," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. "The Climate Action Plan establishes baselines and charts the path forward to net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, and it will be updated every two years to track progress and to evolve with the unique needs and circumstances of our city."

The draft Climate Action Plan is composed of goals and actions to diminish greenhouse gas emissions from a large number of activities in areas such as Water, Waste, Transportation, Stationary Energy, Heat, Food Systems and Air Quality.

There are numerous climate actions in the project, such as minimizing emissions from buildings, transportation, and waste, encouraging electric vehicles usage, establishing a network of cool pedestrian corridors, developing air quality, and fostering an inclusive and equitable city.

It's time for Phoenix citizens to share their climate action priorities and ideas with the city to help combat climate change. To get involved, review the draft plan at https://www.phoenix.gov/oep/climate, complete a survey, and submit comments, feedback or questions to climate@phoenix.gov.

The deadline for comments and suggestions is Friday, July 30.
