WHAT

A friendly competition among residents to learn, find resources, and take action to reduce your household’s climate impact. Using a fun and easy website, earn points for reducing your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and share points with your team, neighborhood and community group to win prizes and bragging rights.

WHY

In California, we are already feeling the effects of climate change firsthand with more extreme weather, intense wildfires, and droughts. Without decisive action, we face even greater environmental, economic, social and health impacts in decades to come.

The good news is that solutions already exist at all levels — from individuals like you to businesses to local, state and federal government — to create a healthier planet for our children and their children. Piedmont’s Climate Action Plan sets ambitious targets for reducing GHG emissions: ⇩40% by 2030 and ⇩80% by 2050. 

WHEN

For the first 6-month challenge, winning teams, neighborhoods and groups will earn prizes and recognition at the second citywide Tasting a Sustainable Future event in April 2020.

NOW to MARCH 2020

200+ households participate

⇩5,000 lbs of GHG per household

⇩1+ million lbs of GHG citywide (~10% of 2030 goal)
