As a mountain and recreation-based community, Avon has a close connection with the environment and understands that nature’s health and well-being is one of the town’s most valuable assets. Therefore, reducing Avon’s carbon footprint is one of the town’s priorities.
The Climate Action Plan for the Eagle County Community is our community's plan to address local climate change. The plan sets a goal for Eagle County to reduce its carbon pollution by 25% by 2025 and 80% by 2050. These goals align with what countries and cities around the world are targeting in order to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
