Hawaiʻi’s Climate Commission recognizes the urgency of climate threats and the need to act quickly. It promotes ambitious, climate-neutral, culturally responsive strategies for climate change adaptation and mitigation in a manner that is CLEAN, EQUITABLE, & RESILIENT.

Hawaiʻi is a small state with big ambitions and big actions–especially when it comes to addressing climate change.

In response to the Paris Agreement, Hawaiʻi created the Hawaiʻi Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Commission (aka State Climate Commission). The Commission’s priorities are captured in its two statements, on ground transportation emissions reduction and adaptation to sea level rise, including disaster recovery preparedness. As a member of the U.S. Climate Alliance, we believe that smart, coordinated State action can ensure that the U.S. continues to contribute to the global effort to address climate change.

Multiple departments and efforts comprise Hawaii’s response to the global climate crisis. Click on the icons below to find out more!
