Why the Climate Friendly Parks Program is Important

The Climate Friendly Parks (CFP) program is one component of the National Park Service Green Parks Plan, an integrated approach by the NPS to address climate change through implementing sustainable practices in our operations. This effort is an integral part of the larger NPS Climate Change Response Strategy (PDF).

The National Park Service Green Parks Plan sets ambitious goals for greenhouse gas emission reductions, much of which is accomplished through energy conservation and reduction in energy use, recycling, composting, technology upgrades and other actions that CFP Member Parks address in their climate action plans.
