Mid-South Climate Action Plan

Mid-South Climate Action Plan: Priority Reduction Measures is a collection of targets and recommendations that will guide the Memphis Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) toward a low-carbon economy, combat the adverse effects of climate change, and promote a sustainable future for the greater Memphis area.

The Memphis and Shelby County Division of Planning and Development's Office of Sustainability and Resilience (OSR) has partnered with 19 committed jurisdictions to produce the Mid-South Climate Action Plan: Priority Reduction Measures to support investment in policies, practices, and technologies that can reduce pollutant emissions, create high-quality jobs, spur economic growth, and enhance the quality of life in the Mid-South region. 

This project is funded by the EPA's Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program and is a product of Phase 1 of the program in which EPA distributed non-competitive planning grants to states, the most populous metropolitan areas, and tribal governments. 

OSR will continue work under this program and will be publishing a comprehensive climate action plan in 2025 establishing targets and strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors as well as applying for a CPRG Phase 2 competitive implementation grant.
