Local governments and the services they provide contribute a small percentage of a community’s climate pollution. Because the majority comes from the private sector (homes, businesses, churches, schools, hospitals, etc.), successful community climate solutions require broad community participation. 

A key step is to ensure that mayors are well equipped to communicate local climate solutions to leaders and residents.
