Bengaluru is formulating its inaugural Climate Action Plan (CAP) with the aspiration of achieving carbon neutrality by the year 2050, following the footsteps of Mumbai and Chennai.

The plan, comprising a comprehensive set of 269 actions, was recently endorsed during a meeting presided over by Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar on November 15.

As a key participant in the C40 Cities global network, where Bengaluru stands as the co-lead of the Global Air Quality Network, the city joins forces with nearly 100 mayors from leading global cities committed to addressing the climate crisis. This collaborative effort includes other Indian cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, and Ahmedabad.

The finalized plan is expected to be officially launched in the coming weeks, following the examples set by two other cities. Among the 269 proposed actions, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will take primary responsibility for approximately 143 of them.

The World Resource Institute (WRI), a global consulting organization, played a pivotal role in developing the 269 actions spanning seven sectors: stationary energy and buildings, transportation, solid waste management, air quality, water, urban planning, greening and biodiversity, as well as disaster management.

The draft underwent meticulous refinement through consultations with various departments and non-profit organizations.

The overarching goal of the Bengaluru Climate Action Plan is to mitigate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions within the city and enhance resilience against climate change-induced hazards.
