Greenovate Boston 2014 Climate Action Plan Update
Carbon, Cities, Climate Action
The Greenovate Boston 2014 Climate Action Plan Update builds upon seven years of work in reducing citywide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and preparing for the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Beginning with the 2007 Executive Order on Climate Action, the City of Boston, Massachusetts set GHG reduction goals of 25 percent below 2005 levels by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050 for municipal operations, and requires the City to plan and prepare for the impacts of climate change. An updated 2019 plan will include actions to reach the carbon neutral by 2050 goal.
