Northbrook's Climate Action Plan (CAP) is Northbrook's mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions community-wide and foster sustainability.
After a community-based planning effort, the Village Board adopted the CAP in August 2021. Since then, the Library, School Districts 28 and 30 have all signed onto the CAP. For the Village, the Sustainability Commission and the Board's Sustainability Committee are responsible for overseeing CAP implementation.
Share your thoughts on the CAP via this online form; comments are automatically submitted to the Sustainability Coordinator and forwarded to all members of your selected committee or commission.
In summer 2020, Northbrook received over 400 initial CAP survey respondents. In June 2021, 40 supporters attended the CAP Open House at Village Hall and over 200 online reviewers commented on the final Draft CAP. The meeting recording to view the Climate Action Plan proposed to the Board of Trustees with public hearing is available at this link.
