NAPA COUNTY:

1.png

Napa County's Climate Action Committee has members from the county and its five cities and towns. The Committee is working to create a countywide Climate Action Plan. This regional approach would include quantifiable and measurable actions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles, buildings, equipment, and other sources, and would enable the cities and the county to create a unified plan rather than taking a piecemeal approach to climate actions and solutions.
