Climate Action, Sustainability & Resiliency

Denver is working to enable a sustainable, resilient, climate-safe future in collaboration with fellow departments, other units of government, and community partners. Cities generate nearly 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions, that makes us a key part of the climate solution.   

ClimateProtectionFund Your Tax Dollars at Work
In 2020, Denverites voted to raise the local sales and use tax to create the Climate Protection Fund. This unique fund raises $40M+ a year to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, support climate adaptation and create new jobs.
