Decarbonization of MTA Operations Task Force

Created by the 2022 Annual Meeting of Delegates

In line with the 2021 Next Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy and the Paris Agreement to keep global temperatures well below 2 degrees of warming, ideally below 1.5 degrees, the MTA set up a task force of members and staff to develop a plan to decarbonize its operations by 2030. The task force was slated to report back to the 2023 Annual Meeting delegates with a plan to be voted on.

And Extended by the 2023 Annual Meeting of Delegates:

Whereas, the 2022 MTA Annual Meeting approved a Decarbonization Task Force to move the Massachusetts Teachers Association towards decarbonization by 2030; and the Decarbonization Task Force has submitted its report and recommendations to the membership that include hiring a consultant to provide a detailed plan with budgetary implications and a timeline; and whereas, the Decarbonization Task Force should monitor the development and implementation of detailed timelines.

The MTA hereby reauthorizes the Decarbonization Task Force for another year.

Chair: Michael Kozuch
