Three years ago, a small group of local governments forged a coalition to push for stronger climate protection policies in Colorado. That coalition, Colorado Communities for Climate Action, is now 20 communities strong. Our member jurisdictions span the Western Slope and the Front Range, municipalities and counties, resort towns and suburbs. They share a commitment to reducing carbon pollution, protecting Colorado from the growing impacts of climate change, and ensuring that our economy can remain competitive and sustainable in the years to come.
