Climate Action Planning

The current Climate Action Plan (CAP) was adopted by City Council in 2016 but needs updating to reflect City and State legislation, priorities, and policies related to environmental sustainability and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction.

On March 21, 2023, the City hosted the second hybrid Resilient & Sustainable Foster City Community Workshop. At the Workshop, participants heard about project updates, collaborated with friends and neighbors to give feedback on proposed strategies, and generated new ideas for the City's update to the Climate Action Plan.

Foster City is updating its Climate Action Plan (CAP), developed in 2015 and adopted in 2016, and seeks community input and participation in its process and development. The CAP is Foster City’s plan to reduce its contribution to climate change while addressing the current and future impacts climate change has on Foster City.
