NJ Mayors Commit to Climate Action
PLEDGE FROM THE NJ MAYORS’ CLIMATE SUMMIT TO COLLABORATE WITH SUSTAINABLE JERSEY AND MAKE A SIGNIFICANT EFFORT TO ACHIEVE THE GOLD STAR STANDARD IN ENERGY
Addressing climate change will require action at every level, from global to local. Support to address climate change at the local level has never been stronger. In New Jersey alone, roughly 40 municipalities and counting have made a public commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by taking pledges sponsored by the National League of Cities, League of Conservation Voters and other coalitions of mayors or environmental groups.
Sustainable Jersey partners with municipalities and provides clear guidance, and meaningful resources, to help them achieve their sustainability goals. With the release of the Gold Star Standard in Energy, Sustainable Jersey has created a detailed roadmap of practical strategies that can help all municipalities do their part to solve the crisis of global warming.
The Gold Star Standard in Energy is a challenging mix of concrete actions and performance standards. Any municipality that achieves it can say with confidence-supported by rigorous documentary evidence-that they have done their part and are on a trajectory to solve the climate crisis.
