Chester County Climate Action Plan; March 4, 2021

The Chester County Planning Commission, working in conjunction with the Chester County Environmental and Energy Advisory Board, will be presenting a draft of the county’s updated Climate Action Plan during a public Zoom meeting on Thursday, March 4.

The updated Climate Action Plan will provide a current greenhouse gas emissions inventory, as well as action plans for reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency throughout the county.

The Climate Action Plan establishes a blueprint for how the county, municipalities, businesses and other stakeholders can reduce their carbon footprint. Work on the plan began in the fall of 2019 and updates and expands on the county’s original 2010 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Report. 

Meeting attendees will be presented with an overview of the plan and proposed actions for addressing climate change, followed by a question and answer session and opportunities for public comment. 

We invite you to join us for this meeting to discuss the draft plan and provide your feedback! We also invite you to share this meeting information with others. Attached is a press release providing more information about the meeting, as well as a partner toolkit and graphic with suggested language for sharing.
