Climate Work Group

The Climate work group is an internal group of Council members established by the Met Council (PDF) to provide a forum for group members to work with staff on guiding the development and implementation of the Climate Action Plan, including:

  • Identifying opportunities for Council member, partner agency, and public engagement
  • Identifying areas in the plan where more investigation or discussion is needed
  • Identifying barriers to implementing impactful strategies and potential solutions to overcome those barriers
  • Guiding and monitoring progress of Climate Action Plan development and implementation
  • Identifying emerging climate change issues and strategies for the full Metropolitan Council’s consideration.

The climate work group constitutes a quorum of the Environment Committee, and therefore is publicly noticed as a special meeting of that committee.
