Sonoma Climate Challenge

Did you know that over 40% of greenhouse gas emissions come from actions at the household level?

We believe that you can help us create a resilient, sustainable future with healthy, safe and thriving neighborhoods. Sonoma County is already a leader in climate action and sustainability, but we need your help right now to reach our next critical goal.

The 2019 Sonoma Climate Challenge showed that together we can create a clean energy, low carbon future and make Sonoma County a national model. Over 6 months, nearly 500 households took over 600 actions to reduce 178 tons of CO2e, and helped conserve water and save money along the way. If you participated in the Challenge, you can still log into your account for a limited time.
