The Collaborative’s Mission
The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative’s mission is to reach carbon neutrality—or net zero—on Cape Cod and the Islands by enhancing communication, collaboration, and activism among organizations, programs and individuals committed to mitigating the climate crisis.
We do this by uniting available knowledge, resources, talent and tools to mitigate climate change impacts on Cape Cod, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and work toward achieving “net zero”-based goals for the Cape and Islands. We seek to create conditions to foster innovative, feasible, cross-sector solutions to the climate crisis.
The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative was established in 2016 to help mitigate the climate crisis and mobilize Cape Cod and the Islands to move toward net zero.
Net Zero Cape & Islands
Our annual round table convenes federal, state, regional and local leaders to enhance collaboration, share best practices, develop action plans, and advance the goal of clean energy throughout the Cape & Islands region.
Climate Action Newsletter and Action Alerts
Our Climate Action Alert newsletter delivers curated actionable climate crisis news from around the region to our readers.
We Have the Power to Change Our Future. We’re Doing Something About It.
“Cape Cod and the Islands are an epicenter of global climate change. But climate catastrophe is not pre-ordained. We must act now, together, to avert an existential crisis.”
