Climate Initiative

The goal of our Climate Initiative is to reduce our community’s overall carbon emissions. Reduction of Nantucket’s carbon emissions will provide multiple economic benefits by creating cost reductions through:

  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Development of renewable energy and reduced dependency on fossil fuels
  • Reduced traffic congestion & pollution benefiting tourist economy and downtown revitalization
  • Increased availability of locally-grown & produced food & specialty products, benefiting local food
    producers and distributors
  • Potential for economic benefits through eco-tourism and agri-tourism
