Part of: City Climate Action Planning

Synergize Climate Action with Other City Priorities


The city climate action plan can be a stand-alone document or be integrated across other city plans, such as comprehensive plans, zoning or building codes, or capital projects programs. 

The climate action plan can be integrated through the following strategies:

  • Cross references: The climate action plan is cross-referenced by other city plans and vice-versa
  • Appendices: The climate action plan is listed as an appendix in other city plans
  • Chapters: City plans include a chapter on the climate action plan
  • Integrated: Elements of the climate action plan, such as the emissions reduction target and specific actions, are directly integrated into city plans
