CLIMATE COLORADO’S MISSION AND FOCUS
OUR VISION: Climate Colorado approaches the global climate crisis a local problem that we can solve together.
OUR MISSION: To centralize and strategically focus all of Colorado’s renewable energy efforts while tracking and promoting accomplishments city-by-city, county-by-county and district-by-district across the entire state towards our specific goals.
OUR GOAL: Climate Colorado’s ambitious but attainable goal is to switch to safe, clean and renewable energy resources and programs to make our state “Net Zero” by 2020.
There are a lot of folks and organizations doing tremendous work on climate change and making a real difference. But all seem to be going in different directions, working on varied goals for specific issues and problems without continuity or collaboration. Having discussed this concern with many of these independent organizations, each agree our approach would accelerate the potential for success to meet the crucial goals we need to reach by 2020.
The Climate Colorado’s primary campaign will implement a step-by-step program with goals and objectives to help individuals and businesses move to renewable energy. It will support the effort with a series of programs all aimed at increasing awareness, education and access to the resources we already have to make this all possible. The first goal of Climate Colorado is to work with all climate and environmental organizations to eliminate the inefficiency of overlap and duplicate efforts.
