New Haven Mayor Announces Climate Task Force

DECEMBER 1, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Today, New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker formally announced the formation of the Climate Emergency Mobilization Task Force. The formation of a climate task force was part of a resolution unanimously approved by the New Haven Board of Alders in September of last year. The group will be aimed at tackling climate change in New Haven head-on, including an aim to end community-wide greenhouse gas emissions by or before December 31, 2030, and to initiate an effort to safely draw down carbon from the atmosphere.

“We are in the midst of deeply challenging times and climate change is one of the most pressing challenges as it confronts the very existence of our planet as we know it,” said Mayor Justin Elicker. “The City of New Haven has been working on many different climate initiatives; however, the taskforce will bring focus, advocacy, and support to those and other new initiatives. While it took longer than expected to finalize, we are excited about the membership of the taskforce that includes passionate advocates to keep pushing us to new limits, area experts that bring deep knowledge, and community leaders to ensure the community’s voice is prominent at the table,” he concluded.
