Sustainable Arlington acts on the local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Environment Committee under Envision Arlington (formerly Vision 2020) and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.  See our yearly project statement in the Town of Arlington Annual Report, under Community Development and Planning, 

If you have ideas for ways Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewable energy, or manage Arlington's environmental resources more sustainably, please come to one of our  monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.


The 2017 Mass. legislative session is underway. 

State Sen. Mike Barrett, has just re-filed his path-breaking carbon pricing legislation

 SD.1021, “An Act Combating Climate Change.”  


Carbon pricing is the single most effective step a state can take to fight global warming Sen. Barrett's office has done rigorous economic modeling and reports that revenue-neutral carbon pricing incentivizes residents and businesses to reduce fossil fuel consumption even as its effect on Massachusetts is job-positive.


... Carbon pricing is formidably effective in fighting climate change but unavoidably regressive, as it’s based on a household’s fossil fuel consumption rather than its income.  The best way to cure this regressivity is to rebate the money entirely, as Sen. Barrett's bill does.
