Climate Transformation Alliance

The Climate Transformation Alliance (CTA) is a regional public-private partnership of local governments, special districts, community organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to collaboration, innovation, and accountability through a governing body and shared vision for the North Tahoe-Truckee community to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.

In late 2021, the Town of Truckee, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, and Truckee Donner Public Utility District, under the guidance and facilitation of Sierra Business Council, developed a Charter and Strategic Plan for the CTA. In June 2022 they began formally welcoming members to the alliance.

The creation of this platform is a way to work collectively to identify and implement program, policies and projects that reduce emissions and climate risk and promote adaptation to climate change. The CTA is an information sharing and learning network while also offering a centralized platform to work together to set a common regional agenda, share resources to help speed climate adaptation and mitigation focused projects, offer peer-to-peer technical assistance to meet goals, measure outcomes, and report successes.


CTA’s vision for the Truckee North Lake Tahoe region is to achieve net carbon neutrality by 2045 through a combination of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction and sinking or storing carbon in natural lands.

Carbon neutrality will improve the environment, reduce the risk of wildfire, create new opportunities for innovation and business creation, diversify our economy, improve public health, equity and safety, and meet our commitment to steward the region for the benefit of future generations.
