Climate Action and Resilience Plans

Louisville KY-IN MSA PCAP

In 2023, the Office of Sustainability was awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant to create a regional Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) for the Louisville KY-IN Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) including 11 counties in Kentucky and Indiana: 

  • Louisville/Jefferson County (merged city-county area)
  • Bullitt County, Kentucky
  • Oldham County, Kentucky
  • Shelby County, Kentucky
  • Spencer County, Kentucky
  • Henry County, Kentucky
  • Trimble County, Kentucky
  • Clark County, Indiana
  • Floyd County, Indiana
  • Harrison County, Indiana
  • Washington County, Indiana

Thank you to everyone, including the core project team, the 80-member Net Zero Advisory Group, the 40+ public meeting attendees, the 1000+ survey respondents, and several more who participated in a variety of ways and helped shape this plan! The final version of the PCAP has been submitted to the EPA and can be accessed here:

Regional Climate Action Plan public meeting recordings:

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.

Mayor Craig Greenberg is a member of 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. Mayor Fisher originally joined the network in 2017 to build political will for federal and global climate action while demonstrating that commitment locally. Read the Climate Mayors' letter to Congress urging federal leadership to advance a green and equitable COVID-19 recovery.
