Building on Success
Addressing a Changing Climate
Continuing the City's legacy of climate action and progress, the City of Bozeman passed a resolution in 2017 to join the Climate Mayors, a partnership of over 400 United States mayors committing to uphold the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement through local action.
The City established the following objectives to guide development of the Bozeman Climate Plan:
- Align the City's emissions reduction goals in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement.
- Create an actionable project implementation and policy-making guide.
- Include a diverse group of stakeholders in shaping Bozeman's response to climate change.
For more information on the Bozeman Climate Plan process, please read the project fact sheet.
The Bozeman Climate Plan will only be successful if there is community engagement and support for the solutions identified. Join us for:
