Why It Matters

More than 300,000 people live in Pittsburgh (as of 2020). The city is home to many built assets, economic activity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, ambitious action is critical to respond to the climate crisis.

Pittsburgh has already begun to experience the effects of climate change with harsher winters, hotter summers, record setting precipitation, more flooding, and increased numbers of invasive species. Coordinated, concentrated, and comprehensive carbon mitigation action is needed to reduce the severity of regional impacts and prepare for a zero carbon economy.
