The 2010 Community Climate and Energy Action Plan (CEAP) has guided a number of City, community based, and local partner agency efforts over the past seven years. As part of the direction from City Council in 2016, the City identified updating the CEAP as an organizational priority in 2018. The focus of the CAP 2.0 Project is to continue to foster the actions of the City, as well as our community’s agencies, companies and organizations, in moving toward carbon neutrality, reduced fossil fuel use, and adapting to climate change.
The CAP 2.0 project plan was developed in consultation with the Mayor’s Ad Hoc Climate Recovery Ordinance Work Group, a group that included the Mayor, three City Councilors, representatives from the City Executive Team, representatives from the Chamber of Commerce, and many other community members. The project earned support from City Council.
Over the next year, the CAP 2.0 project will focus on engaging with Large-Lever Shareholders—organizations in Eugene who have significant impact on community-wide fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions or have the ability to affect or alter systems that will enable the community to adapt and prepare for climate change. Project staff will work with these partner organizations to identify climate actions that organizations will take action on during the next 5-10 years.
