In December 2018, the City Council unanimously approved the Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP) which among other goals, calls for municipal operations to reach carbon neutrality by 2035. Carbon neutrality refers to achieving net zero carbon dioxide emissions by balancing carbon emissions with carbon removal (often through carbon offsetting) or simply eliminating carbon emissions altogether (the transition to a "post-carbon economy"). In Evanston, the strategy will focus, primarily, on eliminating carbon emissions altogether through energy efficiency, building design, use of renewable energy and eliminating the use of fossil fuels such as vehicle fuel consumption and burning of natural gas.
