Plan goals

Climate change is already impacting Minneapolis communities. This Climate Equity Plan sets a goal to significantly reduce climate pollution by 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2050.

But it’s not just about the environment. It’s about people. This work prioritizes diverse residents, organizations and businesses, especially in our Green Zones. It reduces utility bills and increases green jobs. It creates a healthier, more prosperous future for everyone.

We have lofty goals:

  • Partnering with community members to improve racial equity
  • Tackling climate change and improving people’s lives

The City of Minneapolis is committed to take on these challenges. It will take time, but together we create the future. Our City. Our Plan.
