Proactive climate planning has become a priority for many local governments and planning entities, especially considering recent natural disasters such as the Thomas fires and Montecito mudslides. We believe collaborative climate adaptation and resiliency planning is critically important to maintaining essential infrastructure and preparing for the impacts of climate change. SoCalGas is committed to being an active and valuable partner to local governments in this effort, and to providing resources and assistance where needed. Let us know: How can we support you? Please continue to notify us to keep us involved at all stages of the planning development process, including during preparation of climate action plans, energy action plans, sustainability plans, and climate adaptation and resiliency plans.
