We recognize the scientific consensus that human activity – primarily GHG emissions and the conversion of land for agriculture and development – is contributing to changes in the global climate including changing weather patterns, rising sea levels and more extreme weather events. We believe that actions must be taken now to stabilize and reduce emissions in line with the international goal of preventing temperatures from rising more than two degrees Celsius by the end of this century.

The District is well positioned to lead the way to a low carbon future.
