Oakland 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP)

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

Read and Comment on the Draft ECAP


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 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 all 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 are seeking your insights as we create this new plan.

After more than ten months of work, the draft ECAP is now available! This draft is responsive to extensive community engagement and technical analysis. We urge you to read and comment on the plan, and join a Town Hall to vote on what needs to be kept, improved, or eliminated. Food and childcare will be provided. Simultaneous interpretation will be available with advanced request. Both Town Halls will cover the same material.
