“Our recent Climate Stocktake is a powerful testament to Hoboken’s collective commitment to a sustainable future. We understand the need to reevaluate our Climate Action Plan to ensure our city is best prepared for the challenges of tomorrow, while promoting climate justice and equity,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“I thank all the residents and community members who participated. Your invaluable input will help us as we move forward to updating our Climate Action Plan in the year ahead and I look forward to gathering more feedback from the community in the coming months.”

The Climate Stocktake & mini-COP, comprised of stakeholders from local academic institutions, municipal offices, volunteer organizations, youth organizations, and the business community, featured three roundtable discussions.

The first was “Where We Are,” where participants discussed Hoboken’s current standing on climate action and support, identifying achievements, successes, and areas that require improvement.

The second was “Where We Want to Go,” a roundtable that focused on the collective vision for Hoboken’s sustainable and resilient future, discussing ambitious goals and targets for climate action.

Finally, the discussion concluded with “How We Get There by Following a Climate-Justice Path,” participants explored the strategies and actions necessary to mitigate Hoboken’s impacts on the climate while prioritizing climate justice and inclusivity.

City planners will analyze feedback gathered from the Climate Stocktake & mini-COP to inform future policies, legislative measures, and projects.

The insights gathered will also contribute to the global conversation on climate action through Hoboken’s participation in the upcoming COP28 in Dubai.

  1. Meanwhile, in China…

    I purposefully throw my plastic bottles and aluminum cans in the trash. It makes me feel good to be able to provide our social workers with jobs helping our ever increasing homeless find recyclables in hidden places.

  2. Ravi the sleaze bag Bhalla doesn’t give a RATS ass about climate change.
    He sees it as free press for his next job out of town as well as a potential for campaign contributions to his coffers from contractors. Oh and then there’s the legal contracts he loves to trade.

    IMHO Ravi Bhalla is dishonest and looks the other way while corruption happens all around him.

    He’s the worst mayor after Russo and Cammarano

  3. Why do you keep posting on here?

    Don’t you know we can try to smear you on the media any day? Hoboken Girl Jen’s husband is Vijay’s bro! Marilyn now works for Ravi. We have two spokespeople and own Patch, HudsonTV, and TapInto Steve.

    Ravi for Congress!
