Climate and Sustainability
Cotati recognized as a "Frontrunner" in the fight against climate change for its EV Charging Reach Code!
Welcome to the City of Cotati's Climate and Sustainability webpage. The City has recognized the urgent need to reduce activities that contribute to climate change, while preparing to address climate change impacts. The Cotati City Council has declared climate change mitigation and adaptation as one of the main goals of the City, and strives to implement greenhouse gas-reducing measures. The City's participation in regional climate action planning, and City programs to facilitate sustainable transportation choices, reduce fossil fuel emissions, conserve water, promote local food production, sustain and grow the urban forest, and promote compact infill development are all examples of Cotati's efforts to proactively respond to and mitigate climate change and preserve precious resources. Please visit the pages below to learn more about Cotati's commitment to climate protection, climate change adaptation, and sustainability, and the ways that you can take action.
The City of Cotati’s planning and policy framework is designed to both combat climate change, and prepare our community to adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.
City policies and programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as reducing fossil fuel use in buildings and transportation, and facilitating non-motorized transportation, are key to reducing climate change impacts.
Reducing water use is critical to sustainability and maintaining quality of life for Cotati residents. The City offers a number of resources and programs to help residents and businesses save water.
Protecting and growing our urban forest is key to reducing and adapting to climate change, since trees reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, absorb air pollutants, and help keep neighborhoods cooler, which reduces energy use.
The City of Cotati encourages home gardening and urban agriculture, which address climate change by reducing transportation and energy use.
City policies to increase building density within our city limits can promote affordable housing development, limit sprawl, protect greenbelts and open space, and facilitate walking and biking for transportation
Individual actions can have a big impact in addressing climate change. Learn more about what you can do.
A number of local organizations are working to reduce climate change and to help our communities become more climate resilient
