Flagstaff City Council Climate Action

  1. City Council Climate Goals
  2. Carbon Fee and Dividend
  3. Climate Pledge

The following objectives will help the City of Flagstaff to accomplish this goal:

  • Develop and implement a climate action plan.
  • Become a 100% renewable energy city as an organization and a community.
  • Divest municipal assets from fossil fuels.
  • Sponsor and support state or federal legislative action that combats climate change.
  • Update energy code.

In response, the Sustainability Section is developing a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, planning for additional renewable energy installations, and continuing our work to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions in the municipal organization and throughout the community.
