Climate Action Strategy

Climate change threatens lives and livelihoods in our community and all around the world. The increasing impacts of this crisis have led to global consensus urging everyone everywhere to take immediate, aggressive action to avoid irreversible catastrophic global and local damage that each day is intensified by human activity.

Achieving the goals set forth in the Climate Action Strategy will require building on our extensive framework of collaboration to include everyone in our community, while also working diligently to secure and accelerate ambitious public and private investments.

Emissions Inventory

According to Miami-Dade County’s 2019 Community-Scale greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory, the majority of GHG emissions in the County come from fossil fuels used in the transportation (55%) and building (41%) sectors, with a small contribution from water and waste (4%).

The seven approaches proposed in this strategy are bold targets that will drive down these major sources of emissions. The approaches are:

  • Benchmark, retune and retrofit existing buildings
  • Expand on-site and off-site renewable energy
  • Build ultra-low energy buildings
  • Reduce transportation-related fuel consumption
  • Expand and protect green and blue spaces
  • Convert waste to energy
  • Reduce waste and water use
