December 30, 2020 (BOSTON, MA) – Massachusetts environmental officials have unveiled plans that will guide the state’s efforts to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 as well as a more detailed draft blueprint outlining clean energy efforts through 2030. Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement in response.
“Massachusetts needs to commit to significant changes if we’re going to reach the 2050 emissions limits required by law,” said Caitlin Peale Sloan, Interim Director of CLF Massachusetts. “The people who will be affected most by the climate crisis, including Black and Brown communities and low-income households, must be part of the process, and it’s a great step forward that officials plan to do just that. We will be holding our leaders accountable for sticking to the goals laid out in this plan because it’s time to get to work.”
CLF experts are available for further comment.
