     The Vermont Climate Action Communities (VCAC) initiative is designed to help Vermont municipalities achieve energy efficiency savings, reduce local emissions & participate in the transition to a clean energy economy, improve resilience in the face of climate change, and provide locally supported renewable energy generation for municipalities and the communities they serve.

    VCAC is the municipal component of the Vermont Climate Pledge Coalition - a group of Vermont municipalities, non-profits, colleges and universities, businesses, farms, and other community organizations which are committed to reducing their carbon emissions and help Vermont meet the U.S. pledge to reduce 2005 greenhouse gas emissions levels by 26-28% by 2025

    How can municipalities my town become a Vermont Climate Action Community?
    The town's Selectboard or City Council must act to approve your municipality’s participation in the Vermont Climate Action Communities Program.  This can be done simply through a vote of your legislative body, reflected in minutes of the meeting where action was taken, or a vote to adopt a resolution supporting its participation in the program.   (Sample Resolution).  Once the approved, please complete the form below to become an official member.

    The Vermont Climate Pledge Coalition is a state-wide coalition of businesses, non-profits, municipalities, and educational institutions dedicated to the Paris Climate Agreement and Vermont’s goal of 90% renewable energy by 2050. 

    Three Different Ways to Become A Member:

    1) Fill out the form below to become a member and select "actions," which are initiatives or projects your institution or organization has undertaken or completed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. (For example, the University of Vermont recorded "Replaced business vehicle(s) with plug-in hybrid vehicles" as an action it has taken.) 

    2) Want to become a member of the Coalition but not ready to record your institution's actions yet? Become a member of the Coalition by filling out the form below and selecting the action: "Became a member of the Coalition." Then, record your institution's actions at your own pace.

    3) Become a member by recording your institution's actions and/or by making a pledge. A pledge is a promise to achieve or implement something new in the future, such as future actions your organization would like to work towards taking, or a commitment to expand a current initiative in some significant way.
