Join the Carbon Free La Crosse Challenge! The climate change challenge we face today is having an impact on our air quality, water quality and quantity, temperature, and severe weather. Increasing emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere are creating a serious threat to our immediate future.  The choices we make today as individuals and as a community will determine the world that our children and future generations will inherit.

The City of La Crosse is committed to policies that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, accelerate the clean energy transition, and create a climate resilient community. In January of 2023, the City Council adopted the La Crosse Climate Action Plan (link is external) which charts a path towards a 50% reduction in our community’s GHG emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050. We are proud that our city's commitment to ambitious climate action makes us a part of the historic and powerful response by the world’s cities to address the climate crisis.   

We all need to be part of the solution. The good news - there are actions everyone can take that will make a difference! 

Help achieve La Crosse’s vision to be carbon free by 2050 by taking action to reduce your own emissions. This site, Carbon Free La Crosse, makes it easy to learn what actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint. Each action has helpful tips that explain how to act and relevant information, rebates, and programs specific to La Crosse. You can track the cumulative carbon impact of the actions you have taken. You can also register with groups and neighborhoods and challenge others to help La Crosse become carbon neutral.
