ABSTRACT

Department of Commerce 2021 Climate Action Plan for Adaptation and Resilience   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "The Department of Commerce is committed to fulfilling the vision set forth in Executive Order (E.O.) 14008, 'Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad', through emulable leadership and action to integrate equitable climate considerations into all aspects of the Department's missions, policies, operations, facility management, real property, acquisitions, and use of resources. As directed by E.O. 14008, the Department of Commerce's 2021 Climate Action Plan for Adaptation and Resilience highlights the important role the Department of Commerce plays in advancing climate adaptation and resilience. The actions captured in this Plan, as well as the broader work of the Department to address the climate crisis, support the Department's mission to create the conditions for economic growth and opportunity. Global climate change is both a long-term challenge and a reality today; between short-term variability and long-term trends, it will affect a range of Departmental services, operations, programs, and assets. A changing climate will also result in financial, operational, and regulatory risks and opportunities across diverse industries and sectors at local, regional, national, and international levels."
