2030 Climate Action Plan

The City of Edina approved its first Climate Action Plan for the community in December,  2021. The plan helps those who live and work in Edina imagine and achieve a future where the Earth and all who live on it thrive.

The plan includes 200 actions that can be taken in Edina to meet goals by 2030. The City’s greenhouse gas emission goals target a reduction in City operations and communitywide emissions by 45 percent below 2019 levels and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the 2015 global Paris Agreement. Goals are arranged under the categories of Transportation & Land Use, Water & Wastewater, Buildings & Energy, Local Food & Agriculture, Green Space & Trees, Climate Health & Safety and Climate Economy.
