The City of Laurel’s Environmental Affairs Committee seeks to protect and improve the health and welfare of the City’s environment, by identifying specific areas that may need improvement, organizing and providing educational programs, and advising on environmental issues in and around the City.

The City is doing its part to take action on current climate issues by partnering with other U.S. cities and counties to advocate for national climate policies and take collective action; setting a goal for emissions reduction equal to or greater than the U.S. goal under the Paris Agreement (26-28 percent by 2025); and working with energy utilities to increase renewable energy provided to residents and businesses.
