Greenwich Sustainability And Climate Resiliency Plan

Webpage Header- SCRP

We are already beginning to feel the impacts of Climate Change in Greenwich, which include coastal and inland flooding, heat waves and poor air quality, among others. We are seeking to make our community climate resilient and at the same time, contribute to the global efforts to reduce impacts of anthropogenic climate change. Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) has published an informative report highlighting the impacts of climate change on Connecticut. You can read it here.

The Town of Greenwich's Sustainability and Climate Resiliency Plan ( hereupon referred to as the Climate Action Plan) is part of a resolution declaring Greenwich’s commitment to advance sustainability and climate resiliency. Read the entire resolution here   

The goal of this Climate Resiliency Plan is to first identify the climate-related challenges that face our community, and then to suggest mitigation and adaptive strategies that individuals, neighborhoods, and the Town as a whole can adopt to help combat the threats to public health and our environment.

The Town of Greenwich Conservation Commission seeks public feedback to help guide the development of the town's Climate Action Plan. The feedback in this survey will allow us to establish a vision as a community as well as gather data and prioritize key topics and action plans.
