Michigan Climate Action Plan

The Michigan Climate Action Council (MCAC) is a broad-based group of Michigan stakeholders charged with making a comprehensive set of state-level policy recommendations to the Governor in a Michigan Climate Action Plan. On March 1, 2009, the MCAC completed the Climate Action Plan which identifies 54 policy recommendations for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These actions to reduce GHG emissions can have positive economic and environmental benefits for Michigan including increasing energy efficiency, conserving natural resources, improving air quality, reducing water pollution, saving costs, creating jobs, and diversifying Michigan's economy. These policy recommendations are estimated to reduce 987 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent between 2009 and 2025 and generate a net cumulative savings of about $10 billion during the same time period.
