We’re taking historic, bold action in Oregon to reduce climate pollution, protect our air and water, and do our part as a state to respond to the climate emergency. We’re improving our transportation, businesses, energy, and buildings to lower pollution over time with clean, renewable options that will save money, protect health, and create jobs.
In March 2020, Governor Kate Brown signed a sweeping action to address the climate crisis, Executive Order 20-04 the Oregon Climate Action Plan (OCAP). It’s a sector by sector approach for Oregon to transition away from dirty energy that puts carbon, sulfur, and arsenic in our air and water and puts the future of our kids and grandkids at risk, to a clean energy economy .
A vast majority of Oregonians have demanded climate action for years, as wildfires have burned longer and our clean water supply is threatened. We’re in an emergency. Governor Brown says Oregon has a scientific, economic and moral imperative to take action!
