Clark County adopts historic climate action plan

Clark County lawmakers adopted the county’s first comprehensive sustainability and climate action plan on Tuesday, setting the table for a shift in its operations — from building energy consumption to employee commuting — in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

“All-in Clark County” is a road map to meet environmental goals also shared by the state. Officials vowed it is only the first step in what will be a multi-phased, multiyear effort.
