Mission

The mission of the Green Ribbon Commission is to accelerate the implementation of the City’s Climate Action Plan by convening, organizing, and enabling leaders from Boston’s key sectors.

History

Strategic Plan

As the GRC entered its second decade, it engaged in the strategic planning process to determine where to go from here, and how the GRC network can add the most value in this next phase of city climate work.

Vision

Boston is a global leader in climate resilience and emissions reductions and helps demonstrate the “art of the possible” in ways that inspire others to aggressive action.

Members

Most Green Ribbon Commission members serve on at least one of five different working groups. Working groups are focused either on solving problems and spurring action in specific sectors or on cross-cutting approaches that address key climate issues across the City and region.
