Oakland 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP)

The 2030 ECAP will establish actions that the City and its partners will take by the year 2030 to equitably reduce Oakland’s climate emissions and adapt to a changing climate.

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% 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.

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.
