Climate Action and Resilience Plans
The impacts of climate change are being experienced in Louisville with more intense heat waves, bigger storms, and increased flooding. These changes affect all aspects of our communities, including human health, natural resources, infrastructure, emergency response, economics, and others.
In 2017, Mayor Greg Fischer joined the bipartisan Climate Mayors network of almost 500 mayors across the U.S. dedicated to accelerating city-led climate action to create a low-emission and climate-resilient future. He was appointed to the Steering Committee in January 2020 to build political will for federal and global climate action while demonstrating that commitment locally.
