The City of San Diego, through the passage of its Climate Action Plan, calls for aggressive greenhouse gas emissions reductions, including 100% clean electricity by 2035. This goal is binding for the city and has placed San Diego in a leadership role among large US cities with deep climate action commitments.
WBCSD, under the leadership of its members AECOM, DNV-GL and ENGIE, engaged the San Diego business community to provide recommendations and an action plan for how the city could work in partnership with business to reach its ambitious commitments. The proposed Low Emissions Economy Partnership (LEEP) would facilitate the engagement by convening stakeholders, testing ideas, mobilizing up-front finance for feasibility studies and embedding climate action in the wider economic development efforts.
