LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Gov. Steve Sisolak launched the new State of Nevada Climate Initiative (NCI) to further advance Nevada’s efforts to address climate change.

This first-of-a-kind initiative includes the unveiling of the NCI website, ClimateAction.nv.gov, to serve as the State’s official online climate resource providing a Nevada-wide framework for climate action.

A key pillar of the initiative is robust public engagement and input from Nevada residents to help inform and guide Nevada’s climate action.

The State Climate Strategy will provide the needed framework for Nevada policymakers to evaluate the alignment of various climate policies and programs with the timelines and benchmarks necessary for Nevada to achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction goals established by the Legislature in 2019 and reinforced in the Governor’s Climate EO and Nevada’s membership in the U.S. Climate Alliance.

Nevadans are encouraged to take the online survey and register for the virtual listening sessions here to weigh in on a variety of climate topics, including clean transportation policies, energy-efficient homes and buildings, renewable energy, climate justice focused on socio-economic and urban/rural disparities, and more.

For questions, please email climate@dcnr.nv.gov.
