Located in the City Manager’s Office, the Office of Climate Action & Sustainability (OCAS) leads the City of Sacramento’s efforts to address climate change and accelerate City actions to achieve a resilient, carbon zero future. Formed in 2021, OCAS works closely with City departments to plan and operationalize urgent climate initiatives.

The City is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while adapting to the impacts of climate change. OCAS projects advance climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency through community-focused initiatives, like air quality monitoring, and internal initiatives to make City operations more sustainable. In addition to coordinating climate action among City departments, OCAS works with a variety of external partners, including regional agencies, utilities, and community-based organizations. 

What's Next?

Existing Building Electrification Survey
The City and partners are developing a strategy to transition existing buildings to carbon-free electricity by 2045. You are invited to complete a 5-minute survey about what criteria the Existing Building Electrification Strategy should include to advance equity and address community priorities. The survey will close June 30. Take the survey.

Climate Action Plan
The City will release a preliminary public review draft stand-alone Climate Action Plan on July 1, 2022. The draft CAP will be available for an initial 30-day review period, several months ahead of the release of the full Draft Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, Draft 2040 General Plan and Draft Master Environmental Impact Report for public review this fall. City Council will hold a workshop (tentatively scheduled for July 19, 2022) to discuss the public draft CAP and scenarios for carbon neutrality. Read more.
