In February 2021, Clark County adopted its first ever Sustainability and Climate Action Plan. We introduced All-In Clark County, our initiative to create a sustainable community for the well-being and prosperity of all, today and into the future. This plan is a comprehensive roadmap aimed at increasing the sustainability of our County’s internal operations and represents the first step in what will be a multi-phased, multi-year effort. It’s our way of looking inward at what we can be doing better within our operations to lead the southern Nevada region toward a more sustainable future.
The impacts of climate change are very real, and they are upon us. 100% of our state’s population is experiencing drought, and Las Vegas is the fastest warming city in the country. We know what’s at stake with our water and energy supply and intensifying urban heat island impacts. This plan recognizes those unique challenges.
Our next step is to create the All-In, community-wide Sustainability and Climate Action Plan. With the help of municipalities, utilities, businesses, non-profits, and community members, we are creating an equitable and transparent guide to increasing the social, economic, and environmental resilience of the community, while lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
