Case study: Cincinnati

Karolina Eklöw Wed, 07 December 2022

Cincinnati has raised the standard for city climate action in the U.S. Since 2008, they have worked on a holistic Climate Action Plan with an aim for 80% emission reduction by 2050. But recently, Cincinnati got the confidence to aim higher. Now, they aim for a 100% emissions reduction, and the Climate Action Plan (the Green Cincinnati Plan) puts the just transition first. Cincinnati is the first city to publish a ClimateOS dashboard. 

Core values in Cincinnati

✓  Camaraderie in the city networks regionally and globally.
✓  Innovation for climate equity and accountability. 
✓  Involvement of local communities with hundreds of stakeholders. 


Since joining ClimateOS, the city has

✓   A higher target in reaching net zero by 2050. The city can now gather all stakeholders around the same visualisations and identify which initiatives that will have the biggest impact – and are worth investing in. 

✓ More funding options – with a clear Climate Action Plan and a new new level of accountability in documenting their progress, Cincinnati can focus on securing the funding and investments needed, and make the most of the Inflation Reduction Act.

✓ Improved climate planning in the U.S by working iteratively with ClimateView in tailoring the digital climate planning platform to fit the local needs of U.S. cities.
