Climate Action Plan

The City adopted a Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2013 to make Milpitas a more sustainable community by reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). In addition, the CAP provides guidance for adapting to anticipated effects of climate change. The CAP looks at five key sectors- energy use, vehicle miles, waste production, water usage, and off-road activities-the CAP incorporates best practices to produce a blueprint for achieving GHG emissions reduction in Milpitas and ultimately, to comply with AB 32 and SB 375.

The Milpitas Climate Action Plan (PDF) was adopted by the City Council on May 7, 2013.

The City of Milpitas' Climate Action Update is designed to be a comprehensive roadmap to continue addressing the challenges of climate change and keep the City on its path to carbon neutrality by 2045. The CAP Update is the product of extensive and ongoing engagement with residents, businesses, local government, and other organizations and stakeholders. These extensive community engagement efforts have resulted in locally based and context-specific strategies, measures, and actions designed to achieve the City's climate objectives while simultaneously enhancing the quality of life for Milpitas's residents, workers, and visitors.
