Climate CompactCounty LogoUCSC Logo

On September 26, 2007, the City of Santa Cruz, the County of Santa Cruz and the University of California at Santa Cruz signed an agreement signifying their intentions to lead the region in the effort to mitigate climate change. By signing the Climate Action Compact, these three partners made a clear statement that while the ramifications of and solutions to climate change exist at a global level, action towards those goals must start locally.

In taking this leadership role, the Climate Action Compact partners pledged themselves to the following:

  • Set and present a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goal for their organization;
  • Identify specific inter-institutional cooperative projects that reduce GHG emissions, stimulate investment in the community and foster economic development;
  • Present a comprehensive GHG reduction action plan for their organization; and
  • Immediately invite others from the public, private, and non-profit sectors in the region to join in the effort.
