Climate Action

The City of Mission has a history of taking action on slowing climate change. In 2007, the City of Mission participated in the largest single day signing of the Mayors’ Climate Protection Agreement to advance the goals of the Kyoto Protocol.

Following the signing, a Sustainability Task Force formed to advance these goals. The Task Force’s mission was “to provide a prioritized action plan to serve as a model of sustainability for our local government, citizens and surrounding communities that encompasses People, Planet and Prosperity.” which led to the creation of the Sustainability Commission in 2009 which continues today.

Climate Action Plan Task Force

Mayor Flora formed the Climate Action Plan Task Force in February 2022 to review the Regional Climate Action Plan and Mission’s previous studies and work around sustainability to recommend 1-, 3-, and 5-year strategies to be forwarded to the Governing Body. The group will continue to work on related strategies and welcomes the public’s input.
