We help to transition Mountain Towns to Net Zero by 2030

And positively influence people and organizations around the world.

We believe mountain towns have the power to have a global impact on climate change. MT2030 is a coalition of mountain towns committed to work together to aggressively reduce their carbon emissions to net-zero and hopefully by the year 2030. 

We help mountain towns accelerate their progress towards their net-zero goal the following workstreams:

Setting Goals by signing on the MT2030 Pledge, analyzing and tracking carbon emissions, and prioritizing carbon reduction objectives.

Finding & Implementing Solutions by applying the Project Drawdown comprehensive framework to identify high-impact opportunities, recommending experts, and sharing know-how and experiences spanning policy-making to technical information.

Influencing Others by communicating the successful efforts of MT2030 communities and partners.

Who is Mountain Towns 2030?

MT2030 is comprised of cities, towns and counties and their elected officials, government staff, local leaders and grassroots citizens. MT2030 also includes the businesses, ski resorts, citizens, investors, and non-profits that support and shape the mountain and outdoor lifestyle of our communities.

Why 2030?

The world’s climate scientists agree—to control global warming at 1.5 degrees, the earth needs drastic reductions in carbon emissions by the year 2030. There is a significant gap between current policies and pledges to get us there.  We need to act on effective and proven solutions today.


Worldwide emissions need to peak and begin to drop


Drastic reductions in emissions need to have happened


The world becomes net zero carbon emissions

2020 Net Zero Summit

In consultation with the host committee in Breckenridge, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Summit in Breckenridge, which was scheduled for Sep 29 – Oct 2, 2020. It is our intention to reschedule the annual summit for the fall of 2021 with Breckenridge as the host.
