Dem Govs Get It Done: Gov. Sisolak Launches “First-Of-A-Kind” Initiative to Combat Climate Change
“We all must be part of the solution.”
Today, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak unveiled a historic new initiative to address climate change in Nevada. As part of the initiative, Gov. Sisolak launched the Nevada Climate Initiative website, a first-of-its-kind online resource to provide Nevadans with updated information about climate change and guidance on how to reduce greenhouse emissions, and to allow the public to share their input on the issue.
The NCI website builds on Gov. Sisolak executive order from November 2019, which created the State Climate Strategy. Under that order, Gov. Sisolak’s administration planned to develop recommendations with public, private, and tribal partners to reduce the impact of climate change in the state by December 2020.

Governor Steve Sisolak launched a new initiative Monday morning that focuses on the states efforts to deal with climate change and serve as a resource for Nevadans seeking information.
“I am proud to lead Nevada’s effort to take aggressive, needed action on climate change in our great state through my new Nevada Climate Initiative,” said Governor Sisolak. “Tackling climate change will require continued action on multiple fronts, and we all must be part of the solution.”
Governor Steve Sisolak’s Office has launched the new State of Nevada Climate Initiative (NCI) to further advance Nevada’s efforts to address climate change.
The NCI website, ClimateAction.nv.gov, will serve as the State’s official online climate resource and includes public surveys for virtual listening sessions.
The State Climate Strategy will provide the needed framework for Nevada policymakers to evaluate various climate policies and programs with the timelines and benchmarks necessary for Nevada to achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction goals established by the Legislature in 2019 and reinforced in the Governor’s Climate EO and Nevada’s membership in the U.S. Climate Alliance.
