Climate Action

Why Climate Action? 

We’re facing a climate emergency and need to act; business-as-usual operations are not responsive to the emergency. Climate change is evident in Aspen—we are seeing impacts such as warmer temperatures, shifting rain and snow patterns, and more precipitation arriving as rain rather than snow. As a community that relies on its environment as part of its appeal for recreation and tourism, climate change has far-reaching implications.
