Greenovate Boston is Mayor Walsh’s initiative to get all Bostonians involved in eliminating the pollution that causes global climate change, while continuing to make Boston a healthy, thriving, and innovative city.
Climate action in Boston is a priority for Mayor Walsh. Climate change is happening, and promoting the activities that reduce greenhouse gases creates job opportunities and improves quality of life. We must also prepare our people and infrastructure for a changing coastline and increasing temperatures, so our City is protected from more intense natural disasters and extreme weather events.
Greenovate works with the broader community to implement the City’s Climate Action Plan, which is a roadmap to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020 and to become carbon neutral by 2050. These goals were originally outlined in the City’s Climate Action Plan, and updated recently by Mayor Walsh in his 2017 State of the City Address.
