The City of Oakland is committed to becoming a more sustainable city – a community in which all people have the opportunity to pursue safe, happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, now and into the future. Protecting a clean and healthy natural environment; growing a strong local economy brimming with opportunity; and fostering a safe, equitable and vibrant community are all critical components of this vision. Oakland’s 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP) details the City’s pathway to decarbonize our buildings and transportation, strengthen our local economy, and empower a community resilient against climate change.

The Sustainable Oakland Program is housed in the Sustainability and Resilience Division of the City Administrator's Office. This team fosters collaboration with staff across all City Departments and with community leaders and experts on equitable climate change mitigation and adaptation. The Sustainable Oakland program is an evolution of the Sustainable Community Development Initiative, established by Oakland's City Council in 1997, and is charged with developing plans, ensuring implementation, and tracking progress related to Council’s Climate goals and targets, including its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, Climate Emergency and Just Transition Resolution (2018), and 2045 Carbon Neutrality target (2020).
