Tempe looks to join carbon neutral groups

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

The City of Tempe is moving forward with joining statewide and international efforts for communities to reduce carbon emissions and meet carbon neutral goals.

The latter entails producing enough renewable energy to offset emissions.

The Tempe City Council has given city staff the go-ahead to join the Race to Zero Global Initiative and the Arizona Thrives Statewide Alliance.

The former group includes more than 1,000 communities worldwide who have committed to reach carbon neutral emissions and renewable energy levels by 2050.

Tempe’s plan currently looks to meet those goals by 2060.

The East Valley city will accelerate those goals to 2050 if it joins the effort.

The Arizona Thrive Statewide Alliance includes local governments, real estate companies, utilities, environmental and conservation groups partnering on emissions and climate related issues.

The cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson, Flagstaff and Mesa are part of the alliance along with some notable companies such as First Solar, Sundt Construction, Arizona Public Service, Cox Communications and Sunbelt Holdings.
