Our Call to Action

A Climate Action Plan for our whole community, including government, businesses and residents.

Routt County understands the climate threat and is collectively taking action.

In 2021, Routt County, the City of Steamboat Springs and the Towns of Hayden, Oak Creek and Yampa, with community input and support, formed the Routt County Climate Action Plan Collaborative.

Mission:

To work collaboratively to implement the Routt County Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35% by 2030 and 74% by 2050.

Vision:

Taking local action on climate change to ensure that our communities are safe, families are secure, our economy is thriving, our environment is healthy and sustainable and our County is just, inclusive and equitable.

We Know the Sources of our Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

Our greenhouse gas emissions inventory is a community-wide effort that looks at the impact activities across our community have on the climate crisis. The inventory establishes a 2018 baseline for future emissions inventories that will guide climate action planning.

We Know What Impact our Community has on the Environment and how that Impact will Change Over the Years.
