The Launch of the Climate Transformation Alliance

 

Truckee CA- The Climate Transformation Alliance (CTA) launched on July 15, 2022, with a Kickoff Gathering at Truckee Tahoe Airport.  The CTA is a regional public-private partnership of local governments, special districts, community organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to collaboration, innovation, and accountability through a governing body and shared vision for the North Tahoe-Truckee community to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.

The CTA is committed to the development of local policy and initiatives that will promote the resilience of the community, recognizing that more can be achieved for the community together. The creation of this platform is a way to work collectively to identify and implement program, policies and projects that reduce emissions and climate risk and promote adaptation to climate change. The CTA is an information sharing and learning network while also offering a centralized platform to work together to set a common regional agenda, share resources to help speed climate adaptation and mitigation focused projects, offer peer-to-peer technical assistance to meet goals, measure outcomes, and report successes.

In late 20221, the Town of Truckee, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, and Truckee Donner Public Utility District, under the guidance of Sierra Business Council, developed a Charter and Strategic Plan for the CTA. In June 2022 they began formally welcoming members to the alliance.

The Kickoff Gathering included representation from the Town of Truckee, Truckee Donner Public Utility District, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, 100% Renewable Truckee, Visit Truckee-Tahoe, Nevada County, Northstar, and the Contractors Association of Truckee-Tahoe (CATT). Since the launch, many other organizations have signed the Charter and public and private entities within the North Tahoe Truckee region continue to be welcomed.

The next Climate Transformation Alliance meeting will take place on Friday, October 14, 2022. Interested parties can contact Sierra Business Council for further details and are encouraged to review the Charter and Strategic Plan. The Charter can be endorsed, and your interest in joining the alliance noted, through a board resolution or signature from the business or individual. Local stakeholders who endorse this Charter will be considered as Founding Members and will have one vote in decision-making processes.

The Climate Transformation Alliance aims to lead the charge in climate change, adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for everyone. It recognizes that no single person or organization can do it alone, and now is the time to make the commitment for our community and our planet.
