Climate Protection

The City of Charlottesville first committed to greenhouse gas reductions by joining the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement in 2006. 

This commitment has been restated in the City Council Vision 2025: A Green City, Comprehensive Plans, and by joining the Global Compact of Mayors (now renamed to the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy).

By joining the Global Covenant of Mayors, Charlottesville has committed to develop and implement climate mitigation and adaptation plans.
