San Jose city council will soon vote on key measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These bold solutions are urgently needed to tackle the climate crisis and will set a model for other cities to follow.

The measures San Jose city council are voting on include:

• A Carbon Neutral 2030 Acceleration Strategy to make sure the city is able to achieve its carbon neutral goal by laying out strategies for reducing emissions;
• An “Electrify San Jose” Framework for Equitable Building Electrification to electrify existing buildings in an equitable way, tackling the second-largest source of emissions;
• And reforming rules for new development to remove parking minimums and encourage sustainable transportation; this will create a more walkable and transit-friendly city, while also making housing more affordable.

All of these steps are important for reducing our emissions and strengthening our city’s leadership on climate action. Tell your city councilmembers to vote “YES” on all three.
