Westborough's Climate Action Plan
In 2019, Sustainable Westborough began collecting and analyzing community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data. This research, along with detailed strategies to reduce emissions, formed the 2021 Westborough Climate Action Plan. The plan sets goals for the town to mitigate global climate change, and identifies which community and individual actions will have the greatest impact.
