“Austin will not stop fighting climate change. Worldwide, cities will lead in achieving climate treaty goals because so much of what’s required happens at the local level. Regardless of what happens around us, we’re still Austin, Texas!”
-Austin Mayor Steve Adler in response to President Trump’s withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change
Austin’s proud history of rising to confront environmental challenges began as early as 2007, when the City Council adopted a resolution mandating carbon neutrality for municipal fleets by 2020, along with a goal to “make Austin the leading city in the nation” toward reversing the effects of global warming.
