Sustainable Marin convened a coalition of major Marin environmental organizations and activists to discuss how to create an organized and systemic effort to reduce Marin’s carbon footprint. The result is Drawdown: Marin, now a project of the county of Marin.
DRAWDOWN: MARIN is a bold, community-driven campaign to do our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for climate change impacts. The County with the support and input from the entire community will work to eliminate fossil fuel use and “drawdown” carbon emissions by designing and implementing
solutions in 6 Focus Areas:
Our residential and commercial buildings generate one-third of Marin's greenhouse gases. An easy way to reduce those emissions and energy costs is to turn off all electronics and appliances when not in use.
Collaborating with our neighbors, communities, and local government to learn what we can do together is an important step towards climate resilience. You can start a Resilient Neighborhoods team in your community or business to learn all the DRAWDOWN strategies.
