SCORING
Montgomery County
Climate Scorecard
23
Scoring for each action is based on verifiable CC and Exec actions (e.g. public meeting notes, statements, commitments).

The score represents the extent to the potential of all the indicators collectively for that action have been realized.

Montgomery County passed an historic Climate Emergency Resolution in 2017 calling for 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions Countywide by 2027. This is a great achievement - but is the County government enacting policies that will turn these goals into a reality?

We are a coalition of local climate organizations dedicated to making sure the County follows through and enacts the policy we need to do our part to fight climate change. We plan to score the County government at regular intervals to keep residents informed about what is being done - and what more needs to happen. We represent County residents from all walks of life who want to live in a County that is a true leader on climate.
