Climate Action Plan
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 and 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.
The CAP targets a 35% reduction of community-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and an 80% reduction by 2050. The plan recommends a pathway to address 8 sectors of greenhouse gas emissions and climate vulnerabilities in the Village. There are 190 action items to enact over a 10-year implementation timeframe.
