Climate Change Action - New Hampshire

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description The New Hampshire Climate Change Policy Task Force has released the New Hampshire Climate Action Plan and announced the creation of a public/private partnership that will oversee and guide the Plan's implementation. The partnership, the New Hampshire Energy and Climate Collaborative, includes representatives from New Hampshire's businesses, public entities, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions.

The 29-member Climate Change Policy Task Force, created through an Executive Order, developed the Climate Action Plan over the course of a year through a public process that involved more than 125 stakeholders and input from over 200 citizens. Members of the Task Force, state officials, stakeholders, and other dignitaries joined Governor John Lynch in releasing the Plan, which includes 67 recommended actions to reduce GHG emissions while providing long-term economic benefits to New Hampshire. The Plan sets a long-term goal of achieving an 80 percent reduction in GHG emissions below 1990 levels by the year 2050.

A key recommendation in the Plan is the creation of the New Hampshire Energy and Climate Collaborative, a partnership of leading private and public institutions from across the state. Members include representatives from such organizations as the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, City of Nashua, Business and Industry Association of NH, and University of New Hampshire. The primary purpose of the Collaborative will be to track and facilitate implementation of the Plan's recommendations and to report on progress toward achieving the desired goals.
