Climate Change

CAP comment period website

The Climate Action Plan (CAP) aims to help the County reach its carbon emissions goal of 50% reduction by 2030 (compared with 2005 levels). The goal aligns with the State's projection for 50% emission reduction by 2030 through the implementation of the Maryland 2030 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government's goals for the region.

The draft CAP has been released for public comment from Monday, November 1, 2021, through Wednesday, December 1, 2021. Residents, organizations, businesses, and County-based entities can submit responses to the plan that can help create climate change resilient communities throughout Prince George's County.  

Stay tuned to this page for updates and announcements!
