City of Duluth Climate Action Work Plan

When the City of Duluth passed its climate emergency resolution in April 2021, it was charged with developing a Climate Action Work Plan that would identify strategies for decreasing city and community-wide greenhouse gas emissions and becoming more resilient to a changing climate. 

The Climate Action Work Plan, presented to city council February 2022, is a short-term plan for the next one to five years to set the groundwork for future action. 

The plan includes 9 strategies:

  • Reduce energy consumption in buildings.
  • Increase efficiency and resilience in city utilities.
  • Support low carbon transportation options.
  • Support renewable energy.
  • Improve stormwater management.
  • Reduce solid waste.
  • Reduce disparities in public health.
  • Seek sustainability opportunities that support economic growth.
  • Identify carbon sequestration opportunities.
