Climate Action Advisory Committee

About the Committee
The purpose of Winchester's Climate Action Plan Advisory Committee (CAAC) is to monitor the progress of Winchester's public, residential, commercial, and industrial sectors in achieving the goals and initiatives set forth in Winchester's Climate Action Plan (PDF) and to advise and assist the Board of Selectmen and the town manager in the ongoing development and implementation of the plan's recommendations. The committee also shall recommend to the board and town manager any adjustments to the plan it deems necessary to address changing conditions, technology, and learning.

The overall goal of Winchester's Climate Action Plan is to achieve a 15% reduction in the annual emission of greenhouse gases across the public, residential, commercial and industrial sectors of Winchester by December 30, 2016, using 2006 levels, and to meet or surpass the commonwealth's goal of an 80% reduction by 2050.
