Council Reaffirms Climate Goals After U.S. Withdrawal

In light of President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate accord, the Montgomery County Council unanimously approved a resolution that reaffirms Montgomery County's support for the goals contained in the Paris climate agreement.

“Montgomery County should take justifiable pride in the abundant work we have done to minimize our own carbon footprint” said Councilmember Leventhal. “We get all of the electricity used by county government from renewable sources and we purchase further offsets to pay for the carbon generation that comes from our fuel us.”

Montgomery County has been a leader when it comes to energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction. In 2003, the county began the process of purchasing its energy from renewable sources. And in 2006, Councilmember Leventhal introduced and the Council passed legislation which what was at that time the strongest green building legislation in America. The resolution builds off of previous efforts that the county has undertaken and commits the county to reducing County-wide greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 2005 levels.
