Aspen depends on a stable climate for a thriving economy, healthy ecosystems, and exceptional quality of life.

The City of Aspen Climate Action Office (formerly known as Canary Initiative) strives to promote environmental stewardship and lead climate action efforts throughout the Roaring Fork Valley in partnership with leaders across the state of Colorado and around the world.  

Aspen Sustainability Action Plan

The  Aspen Sustainability Action Plan (ASAP) is the City’s roadmap to reaching our greenhouse gas reduction goals and working towards a sustainable future for all. The ASAP’s guiding principles are that the plan is equitable, adaptable, collaborative, within the scope of the City’s control, and creates co-benefits for the community.

The success of climate and sustainability work is contingent on collaboration between local, state, national, and global partners. Our team uses this multi-level approach to deliver quality programs to the Aspen community while furthering and supporting work on a state and national level.
