Data-driven strategic planning for Pennsylvania’s climate goals

Register to view video

How can a state meet ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets while maximizing the benefits of climate actions? Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan 2021 outlines a bold, multi-sector approach to significantly reduce GHG emissions with short- and long-term goals. It outlines adaptation pathways that will increase preparedness and resilience to climate change while providing economic and public health benefits equitably for all Pennsylvanians.

In this on-demand webinar, you'll hear how we worked with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to conduct strategic planning for short- and long-term climate actions. This innovative project required informed data analysis and modeling—a bold, cross-sector approach to create a more resilient Pennsylvania, reduce GHG emissions, and promote public health equity.

  • Using CO2Sight, our decarbonization strategic planning platform, to create a potential pathway to achieve the state’s GHG targets
  • Exploring different strategies and associated reductions, costs, and economic benefits through a data-driven analytic approach
  • Applying the lens of public health and equity to assess each strategy’s impacts and mapping out options for implementation
