Environmental & Sustainability Division

The City of Dublin is concerned about protecting the environment and safeguarding the public health to create a more sustainable environment for this and future generations.

The City develops, implements, and monitors programs to manage natural resources and hazardous materials; promotes conservation efforts; and administers and enforces many environmental laws. 

Climate Action Plan 

On September 15, 2020, City Council adopted an update to the City’s climate action plan, Climate Action Plan 2030 and Beyond (CAP 2030). To help meet the greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals set in the City’s CAP 2030, City Council voted in January 2021 to set the default electricity option for Dublin residences to East Bay Community Energy’s Renewable 100 service, starting in January 2022. All municipal electric accounts in Dublin have been powered by Renewable 100 since July 2019. For more information on the residential transition to Renewable 100, visit this energy web page.
