Chicago Climate Action Plan

This report can be thought of as an overview document to help everyone learn about Chicago's Climate Action Plan – how it was created, why it is necessary, what are its goals. The Plan outlines 26 actions for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and nine actions to prepare for climate change. These actions call upon a range of government bodies – local, regional and national – to improve policies. The Plan also details steps for organizations of all kinds and suggests actions for every individual. It covers those issues: stormwater management, heating, cooling, air quality, green urban design, plants and trees, public engagement, businesses, and future planning.
