Denton's First Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP)
As global temperatures and extreme weather events increase, local governments are increasingly taking action to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. The City of Denton has been monitoring greenhouse gas emissions from the community since 2011 but is now taking steps to reduce these emissions and to increase our community's resilience.
The City is looking for YOUR input as a part of the climate action planning process. To learn more and stay up to date on this project, please follow the link below and sign up for alerts.

Simply Sustainable - A Framework for Denton's Future
Denton continues to embrace sustainability with the adoption of Simply Sustainable - A Framework for Denton’s Future (PDF) which uses a systematic and comprehensive approach to implementing sustainability improvements throughout the community.
The update to Simply Sustainable includes new strategies based on best practices, STAR Communities/LEED for Cities goals, and community feedback. Our Vision and Guiding Principles remain the same moving forward, while our focus areas and goals have expanded to include additional strategies to further our sustainability as a community.
