Climate Action NOW – Yes we CAN
Sustainable Fairfax believes that we can make change and even fix the climate problem, but only through collaborative action and shared strategies. SFx recognizes that there are literally dozens of organizations in the Bay Area alone working on the climate crisis. Our strategy to accelerate action is therefore, to collaborate with local and regional programs — we don’t need to recreate anything here. To that end, we collaborate with, and borrow from, all the best thinking from organizations working together on this issue.
Fairfax Climate Action Plan (CAP). We work with the Town of Fairfax’s Climate Action Committee who has worked diligently with other Marin County towns, agencies and organizations to craft a Climate Action Plan (CAP) [LINK WHEN READY] that has been adopted by The Town of Fairfax. We use Fairfax’s CAP goals to guide strategies to help meet those goals.
