Climate Action Task Force
Beaverton's Climate Action Task Force
The Task Force, established by Resolution 4712, will serve as a community engagement forum for climate action. It will enhance City Council awareness of community perspectives around climate change and provide feedback on the potential impact of climate action-related projects and activities on members of the community.
Beaverton's Climate Action Plan was adopted in 2019. It contains 86 actions across five framework categories to reduce emissions from our community and safeguard Beaverton from the impacts of higher temperatures. The plan serves as the guiding document for the city's climate action work.
The city recognizes that the impacts of climate change disproportionally affect members of the community least able to deal with them and is striving to ensure the voices of underserved and vulnerable communities are prioritized. The lived experience of community members is highly valued.
