DENVER — Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today released an updated edition of the Colorado Climate Plan, a statewide set of policy recommendations and actions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and to increase Colorado’s level of preparedness.
The revised Colorado Climate Plan reflects advances in the discussion on how best to address climate change at the state level as well as progress since the release of the initial plan in 2015; it also takes into account changes in both global and federal climate policy. The updated plan also wraps in the objectives contained in Gov. Hickenlooper’s executive order from July 2017 that committed the state to additional climate action.
