Reading time: 3 minutes
26 July 2018

Jalisco’s Carbon Management Plan was created as part of the Mexico Low Carbon States Programme, an initiative which supports Mexican state governments to create and implement a robust strategy to reduce their own carbon emissions. 

The purpose of the plan is to create a portfolio of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the Jalisco state government by 40% by 2018 (compared to a 2013 baseline). The plan also intends to raise awareness of public servants on the effects of climate change and existing mitigation strategies. It was implemented through the Ministry of Environment and Territorial Development with support of external partners involved in the Low Carbon States program.
