Its primary purpose is to draft a set of recommendations for programs, projects and policies that will Dane County on the path to deep decarbonization and establish Dane County as a national leader on climate mitigation.

The Council’s recommendations aim to demonstrate that deep decarbonization can be achieved in a just and equitable way, result in major economic and health benefits county-wide, and provide energy security, while bridging the County’s rural and urban communities. When finished, this roadmap to sustainability will be a guide not just for county government but also the business community, homeowners, and other local governments.
