Climate Action Planning

The Climate Economy Action Center of Addison County (CEAC) released on June 14, 2022 a final version of a Climate Action Plan (CAP) for Addison County.


The plan, built over the course of 18 months, and with extensive input and feedback from the community provides a roadmap for our community to address climate change at the local level by:

  • Identifying steps that can realistically be taken locally to reduce climate pollution while moving toward a local economy that is sustainable in the long term.
  • Addressing the three biggest sources of Addison County’s GHG emissions: agriculture, transportation, and buildings (heating/cooling/lighting).
  • Identifying existing and future business and “green jobs” opportunities.
  • Defining roles that individuals, businesses, organizations, and institutions can play.
  • Guiding and coordinating the actions of community sectors including education, agriculture, business, industry, local and state government, nonprofits, and major institutions such as Middlebury College and Porter Hospital.
