Climate Action Plan

The Kansas City Regional Climate Action Plan (CAP) aims to transform the metropolitan area into a more resilient, equitable and healthy community. An ambitious set of interrelated strategies will help to mitigate climate change by achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and adapt to and bounce forward from the many risks climate change poses. Linkages among plan strategies are abundant and intentional.

The plan is ambitious, comprehensive and urgent. It creates a new platform to build on, accelerate and scale up existing efforts through new models of collaborative regional leadership. Resilience-focused investment will catalyze long-term prosperity and health. Interim net zero goals focus on local government operations (by 2030), energy generation (by 2035), and homes and buildings (by 2040).
