Piedmont Climate Challenge starts up again in November

Residents filled Veteran's Hall for the first Piedmont Climate Challenge social on November 7, 2019.

The City of Piedmont is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, we will be hosting and promoting the Piedmont Climate Challenge! Last year, over 250 Piedmont households signed up for the challenge and reduced our collective greenhouse gas emissions by over 200 tons. 

This year, we are setting our goals even higher. We want to have 500 households signed up by May of 2021, and we need your help in order to meet this goal. 

The Climate Challenge gives residents the chance to join teams and community organizations, and to compete against other teams and organizations to see who could reduce their footprint the most.

The Challenge will run from November 2020 to May 2021. If you want to get involved, head to PiedmontClimateChallenge.org to sign up. Once you make a profile, you should fill out the climate actions that your household is taking. Then, you can compare your emissions to your neighbors, join a team, and get more people in the community involved.

This is a fun, meaningful way to work towards a shared decrease in Piedmont emissions. The vast majority of emissions in Piedmont stem from households, and using this website brings attention to this fact and helps us all be more sustainable. 

If you want to get involved beyond the Climate Challenge, you can check out the City’s climate related webpages here. You can also email climate fellow Nate Redinbo if you have further questions at nredinbo@piedmont.ca.gov. He likes to answer anything and everything related to climate actions.
