Revised Final Climate Action Plan Draft Released

The Planning and Environmental Review Division of the Department of Community Development has released a Revised Final Draft of the Sacramento County Climate Action Plan (CAP)

The draft released today revises and replaces the draft released in September 2021.

The CAP is Sacramento County’s plan to reduce its contribution to climate change while addressing the impact climate change has already had on the area. Public comments will be accepted through Wednesday, March 23, 2022. Comments can be sent by email to

A Board of Supervisors workshop on the CAP will be held in March 2022.

“We have made changes based on valuable community feedback, and in response to the Board of Supervisors’ resolution declaring a climate emergency,” said Todd Smith, Principal Planner. “The changes are important, implementable and will help Sacramento County meet its ambitious climate neutrality goal.”

Notable work on the CAP includes:

  • Incorporated Board of Supervisors’ goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.
  • Identified steps the County will take within a year to set the 2030 carbon neutrality target. 
  • Continued coordination with SMUD to ensure that electrification goals can be implemented and are feasible.
