What qualifies as an action or pledge?
An action is an ongoing initiative or project that will reduce your organization’s greenhouse gas emissions, or an initiative or project completed since joining the Coalition.
A pledge is a promise to achieve or implement something new in the future, or a commitment to expand a current initiative in some significant way.
How can I contribute as an individual?
If you don’t represent a farm, business, institution, municipality, or other organization, you can still participate in a couple of ways. First, you can encourage an organization you’re involved with– your employer, academic institution, town, or city– to make pledges. Second, you can make pledges and record actions on the wider Community Energy Dashboard. While these submissions won’t be tallied as part of the Coalition’s analysis, you’ll still be doing your part to reduce your community’s greenhouse gas emissions, and to inspire your neighbors to take action.
