Carbon Free Boston Working Group

The Carbon Free Boston initiative signals the need to transition from old, dirty carbon-based fuels to 100% clean and renewable energy sources in every sector of the economy.

To support the City of Boston’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals, the Green Ribbon Commission is partnering with Boston University’s Institute for Sustainable Energy to develop 2030 and 2050 strategies for inclusion in the City’s 2018 Climate Action Plan Update. Boston is a leader in greenhouse gas mitigation and has set ambitious goals of cutting emissions by 25% by 2020 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
