Tiburon climate head: 2024 goals on track, longer term can seem ‘daunting’

Tiburon is on track to meet end-of-year sustainability goals on electric-vehicle charging and shifts to 100% renewable energy, reusable foodware and composting, officials say, but long-term behavior changes to fight the climate crisis are more daunting.


Grace Ledwith, the shared climate action and sustainability coordinator for Tiburon and Mill Valley, delivered an update on the local climate-action plan during an April 10 online forum that was organized by Sustainable Mill Valley and attended by roughly a dozen people. Tiburon’s plan was adopted in September 2022, while Mill Valley is still working on its final document.

That’ll require slashing 21,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.
