Charleston County is looking to complete its Climate Action Plan and is giving the community a final chance to share feedback.

What is it?

The Charleston County Climate Action Plan is a set of guidelines addressing climate change that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency, advance equity objectives, and increase affordability for households + businesses. The plan would allow the county to use federal funding for various projects.

The plan includes “The Big Moves,” five key focus areas that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions:

  1. Affordable and resilient buildings
  2. Sustainable and inclusive transportation
  3. Clean energy for all
  4. Innovative industrial and agricultural sectors
  5. Circular economy

How to give feedback:

Charleston County residents and business owners can give feedback during public comment at an upcoming meeting on Tuesday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m. at 4045 Bridge View Dr. in North Charleston.
