In September 2021, City Council adopted the Austin Climate Equity Plan. The plan includes the bold and aggressive goal of equitably reachingΒ net-zero community-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 2040Β with a strong emphasis on cutting emissions by 2030. We set this goal because we believe it is possible and know it is needed to preserve a livable climate.
