Critical Commentary

This equity tool was created by the Austin Office of Sustainability in collaboration with the Community Climate Planning Steering Committee and their Equity Working Group.

This tool is intended to guide the Community Climate Planning Process to make sure that equity is at the forefront of the plans concerns, rather than an afterthought.

The development and implementation of this tool marks a palpable difference in the way Climate Protection is being understood and strategized. What has yet to be seen is if this equity tool and planning process will also impact if/how the plan is implemented upon its completion and approval.
