A Message from Bedford 2030’s Executive Director

Community engagement, education, and the creation of grassroots support for climate change projects have been our focus since 2010.

With Bedford 2020 leading the way, our community reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 44%. In addition to exceeding its 20% by 2020 goal three years ahead of schedule. We have now set an aggressive new community-wide goal to reduce GHG emissions by 80% by 2030 – and changed our name to Bedford 2030: Climate Action Now!

To reach our goals we are continuing to empower and mobilize individuals, communities, elected officials, and civic organizations to take action locally and beyond. We will increase renewable energy usage, phase out fossil fuels, reduce waste and adopt clean and healthy water, land, and sustainable food practices. We will continue to extend our impact by piloting projects locally and collaborating with partners in the county, region, and state to extend effective solutions far and wide.

Everyone can make a difference for future generations if we all do what we can now. Join our effort by starting in a way that works for you. Measure your carbon footprint with the Carbon Tracker; take some climate actions indoors, outdoors, or in your lifestyle; get involved by voting, investing, or influencing policy; help us carry out our mission by making a donation, volunteering, or joining one of our community groups. Together we can take Climate Action Now!
