On June 2, 2020 the Travis County Commissioners Court unanimously approved the County’s first-ever Climate Action Plan. The Plan is intended to be a roadmap for lessening the environmental impacts of County operations. Progress will be measured and reported in the Annual Sustainability Report.

Note: The scope of the Climate Action Plan is Travis County as an organization, and not the larger Travis County Community.

Below is the Climate Action Plan as well as Travis County’s Greenhouse Gas inventory which quantifies the emissions produced by County operations.
