What is the City's Commitment to Climate Action?
In March of 2015 our City Council unanimously adopted the following accelerated climate action goals for our community:
- 20 percent below 2005 levels by 2020
- 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2030
- Carbon neutral by 2050
Our community plays an important role in implementing our Climate Action Plan and we are excited to collaboratively take action for the health of our community, environment and economy.

Carbon Sequestration Report
In 2016/2017, the City of Fort Collins commissioned a study to evaluate the potential of Fort Collins lands to reduce or offset the City’s greenhouse gas emissions. The study looked at current land management practices and related carbon sequestration potential, as well as additional actions the City could take to help meet its climate goals. The City is reviewing the study’s recommendations for possible implementation.
