With more than 50 partners, ClimatePlan brings diverse interests together and has brought new energy and new voices to urban planning, transportation, and conservation in California. Our vision is of a healthier and more vital California, where communities are sustainable, and where people of all backgrounds and incomes have an opportunity to thrive.
We focus on land use and transportation strategies because they offer so many benefits, not just for our climate. The strategies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions also foster more diverse and compact communities, with homes available at a range of incomes, with convenient public transportation and streets that are safe for walking and biking — surrounded by protected natural and working lands. The state’s climate work can also help communities thrive — particularly disadvantaged communities, both urban and rural — and protect our natural heritage for future generations.
ClimatePlan is based in Oakland and has an office in Sacramento.
