The City of Columbia's Climate Protection Action Campaign, better known as CPAC, empowers all Columbians to improve the environment through water conservation, energy conservation, air quality and recycling/waste reduction. City Council formed CPAC in 2006 after the Mayor signed the US Conference of Mayors Climate Action Plan. CPAC now serves as City's clearinghouse for environmental action, information and activities. 

CPAC Appointees meet twice monthly: first Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. (general meeting); third Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. (working meeting). The Advisory Committee members meet quarterly following the CPAC Appointee meeting at 10 AM.
