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.
