Dane County Council on Climate Change

A rural farm scene in Dane County.

The Council is made up of business leaders, representatives of the University of Wisconsin Nelson Institute, local utilities, equity and environmental advocates, as well as local government officials from across the county. Its primary purpose is to draft a set of recommendations for programs, projects, and policies that will keep Dane County on the path to deep decarbonization and establish Dane County as a national leader on climate mitigation.

The Council’s recommendations aim to demonstrate that deep decarbonization can be achieved in a just and equitable way, result in major economic and health benefits county-wide, and provide energy security, while bridging the County’s rural and urban communities. When finished, this roadmap to sustainability will be a guide not just for county government but also the business community, homeowners, and other local governments.
