Climate Action

The City Council approved Edina's first Climate Action Plan in December 2021.

The plan includes 200 actions that can be taken in Edina to meet goals by 2030. The City’s greenhouse gas emission goals target a reduction in City operations and communitywide emissions by 45 percent below 2019 levels and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the 2015 global Paris Agreement. 

Goals are arranged under the categories of Transportation & Land Use, Water & Wastewater, Buildings & Energy, Local Food & Agriculture, Green Space & Trees, Climate Health & Safety and Climate Economy.

The complete plan is a 145-page, 14 MB document. You can view it in whole or by section (recommended).
