Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell previews the release of the state’s Climate Action Progress Report, which reflects the state’s progress in addressing the threats of climate change in response to his Executive Order 41, which called for continuing Delaware’s national leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing strategies to improve the resiliency of the state’s infrastructure, and ensuring all state agencies incorporate measures for adapting to the impacts of climate change.

“We’ve taken important steps to address this challenge by cutting greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, while investing in renewable energy, and we’re making our low-lying state more resilient through projects like dike and beach restorations up and down our coastline. This progress must continue,” said Governor Markell. “In the coming days we’ll release our Climate Action Progress Report on how we’re doing. It shows that we’ve invested in vehicles that use cleaner fuels, strengthened our infrastructure, and increased energy efficiency. Together, we can continue to prepare for and mitigate the effects of climate change, supporting Delawareans’ health and safety, promoting economic opportunity, and addressing one of the greatest threats to the future of our state, our nation, and our planet. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
