Climate Action

Aspen depends on a stable climate for a thriving economy, healthy ecosystems, and exceptional quality of life.

The City of Aspen Climate Action Office (formerly known as Canary Initiative) strives to promote environmental stewardship and lead climate action efforts throughout the Roaring Fork Valley in partnership with leaders across the state of Colorado and around the world.

The City of Aspen Climate Action Plan (CAP) guides the work of the Climate Action Office at the City of Aspen. The CAP prioritizes reducing greenhouse gas emissions and envisioning a low-carbon future for Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley. Dive deeper into the Climate Action Plan and learn about the process here.

The success of climate action work is contingent on collaboration between local, state, national and global partners. Our team uses this multi-level approach to deliver quality programs to the Aspen community, while furthering and supporting work on a state and national level and plugging into global best practices and trends. 

The Climate Action Office sits within the Environmental Health & Sustainability Department; our offices are located at 590 N. Mill Street, Aspen CO 81611.
