Boston's Climate Action Plan

Boston has a lot at stake when it comes to climate change. With rising sea levels alone, more than $463 billion in Boston’s waterfront assets are at risk of flooding and damage. And such estimates do not even begin to account for the costs of more frequent severe weather events and the associated migrations and displacements of hundreds of thousands of people.

The Boston Green Ribbon Commission is a group of business, institutional and civic leaders in Boston working to develop shared strategies for fighting climate change in coordination with the city’s Climate Action Plan. The plan includes strong recommendations on how Bostonians can:

Greenovate
  • Increase efficiencies
  • Reduce emissions
  • Prepare for extreme weather and higher sea levels

Many cities have produced similar plans. But few have also enlisted the support and leadership of the local business community as effectively as Boston.
