The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) released the Strategic Climate Action Plan, which will set the department’s course for continuing to address climate change impacts in seven key areas to protect public health, lives and property in the immediate and near future. The plan expands upon the actions taken as part of NJDEP’s New Jersey Protecting Against Climate Impacts (NJPACT) initiative.

“As we mark Climate Week, it is heartening to see the NJDEP detailing comprehensive steps to accelerate progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and better preparing communities for the significant impacts of a changing climate,” said Tom Gilbert, campaign director for Rethink Energy NJ and co-executive director of New Jersey Conservation Foundation. 

“We are pleased to see an emphasis on decarbonizing buildings, the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in New Jersey, by transitioning heating from natural gas to efficient, air source heat pumps, which clean our air and can save consumers money.”
