About

Oakland is developing a new Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP)! The 2030 ECAP will establish actions that the City and its partners will take to equitably reduce Oakland’s climate emissions and adapt to a changing climate. Oakland’s City Council adopted a new greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 56 percent relative to our 2005 baseline year by 2030. This follows the previous reduction target of 36 percent by 2020, which the City’s first ECAP, adopted by Council in 2012, strives to meet.

The new 2030 ECAP will be rooted in equity and a deep community engagement process: it will identify ambitious actions we can take to combat climate change while also ensuring that frontline communities – those communities that have been harmed by environmental injustice and who are likely to be hurt first and worst by the impacts of climate change – will benefit first and foremost from climate action. We’re focusing our attention especially on actions that will result in cleaner air, improved economic security, good green jobs, and more resilient communities, while also minimizing our contribution to climate change. To learn more about the ECAP Ad Hoc Community Advisory Committee, the group of Oaklanders selector by Mayor Schaff to assist City staff in creating the 2030 ECAP, please click here.

We want you to be a part of making this plan a success! Only by understanding the needs, concerns, and hopes of ordinary Oaklanders – both residents and businesses – can we build a plan that is truly responsive to who we are as a community. Through community workshops and other events, we’ll be seeking your insight as we work to create this new plan. Our timeline is short: the Draft 2030 ECAP will be sent to Council for review in March 2020. Please see the calendar of events below to see how you can get involved. Please check back often, as more events are being added weekly.

You can also contribute your ideas to the ECAP process by completing the Equitable Climate Action Survey! Your responses will directly inform what ends up included in the plan; click here to begin the survey and make your voice heard. The survey is also available in Spanish and Chinese; links to these versions can be found at the top of the linked survey.
