Since 2000, Chula Vista has been implementing a “Climate Action Plan” to address the threat of climate change to the local community. The original Carbon Dioxide Reduction Plan has been revised to incorporate new climate mitigation (2008) and adaptation (2011) measures to strengthen the City’s climate action efforts and to facilitate the numerous community co-benefits such as utility savings, better air quality, reduced traffic congestion, local economic development, and improved quality of life. To help guide implementation of the Climate Action Plan, the City regularly conducts greenhouse gas (GHG) emission inventories.

Climate Change Working Group
During 2014, a Climate Change Working Group (CCWG), which was comprised of residents, businesses, and community organization representatives, reconvened to help update the City's Climate Action Plan. Specifically, the CCWG developed recommendations, through an open and transparent public process, for new greenhouse gas reduction strategies to assist Chula Vista in reaching its carbon reduction goals.

In addition to the Climate Action Plan, the City has a variety of energy-related policies and plans that emphasize energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The City of Chula Vista was a founding member of the new San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative (SDRCC), which is a regional forum for public agencies to share expertise and leverage resources to facilitate climate action planning.
