What is Drawdown: Marin?

Our Vision: Marin reverses its impacts on climate change by implementing local solutions as we create a thriving, equitable, and resilient future for all.  

Our Mission: We collaborate with our entire community to create and implement bold climate solutions.

Drawdown: Marin is a community-driven campaign to do our part to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for climate change impacts. Drawdown: Marin is aligned with the solutions-oriented approach of Paul Hawken’s “Project Drawdown.” Drawdown will work to “draw down” carbon emissions by designing and implementing solutions in 6 Focus Areas:

Renewable Energy, Transportation, Buildings + Infrastructure, Carbon Sequestration, Local Food + Food Waste, and Climate Resilient Communities
