It's not easy being green
Sustainability leaders are trying to make Kansas City the greenest place in the country. With an overall goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, the KC Regional Climate Action Plan covers 80% of the region's population.
The Kansas City Regional Climate Action Plan was created in 2021 and set an ambitious goal of net-zero carbon emissions in the region by 2050. Efforts are already underway throughout the metro to make that a reality and leaders are confident it can be done.
Up To Date's Steve Kraske spoke with Hillary Parker Thomas, board chair of Climate Action KC; Jeremy Knoll, president of Climate Action KC and Tom Jacobs, chief resilience officer for the Mid-America Regional Council for an update on the plan.
