Event Description

In 2017, six Texas cities -- including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio -- signed onto the Climate Mayors’ National Climate Agreement in support of the Paris Agreement and its international emission reduction targets set in 2016 and the goal to keep warming at or below 1.5 degrees Celsius.  Additionally, environmental injustices of the past are being recognized and solutions created to address them, placing equity at the center of this effort towards a more resilient future for all.

To fulfill this commitment, each is creating and implementing a climate action and adaptation plan with the help of nonprofit and academic institutions, private sector experts, and community input.  To date implementation of these plans has begun in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.  The update to Austin’s existing plan (2014) is due later this summer as well as one from El Paso later this year.

Each of these plans include multiple strategies to address issues across the spectrum of a city's operations, investments, and infrastructure.  This discussion will focus on implementing those strategies involving the core competencies of USGBC Texas and our members.
