Information about Colorado Communities for Climate Action


CC4CA's mission

Colorado Communities for Climate Action is a year-old coalition of local governments that advocates for state and federal policies to protect Colorado’s climate for current and future generations. The state and federal actions CC4CA seeks are needed to complement the strong local climate actions CC4CA members already have underway, to keep Colorado a special place to live, to work, to enjoy.

CC4CA governance

CC4CA is governed by a steering committee of representatives from member communities. Unanimous consent among members is required to set the coalition’s policy priorities.

The coalition is administered by the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization, a nonprofit with 13 years of experience working with local governments in Colorado on climate change.

The coalition has retained Frontline Public Affairs to represent it before the General Assembly and other state government departments and offices.
