Drawdown: Marin is a community-driven campaign to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, prepare for climate change impacts, and meaningfully address and integrate equity. Drawdown: Marin works with Marin County residents, businesses, organizations, agencies, and local governments to design and implement local climate change solutions in 6 Focus Areas:
Our Vision: Marin reverses its impacts on climate change by implementing local solutions as we create a thriving, equitable, and resilient future for all.
Our Mission: Leverage, amplify, and support bold climate solutions in collaboration with the community by building a “hub” for increased coordination among local governments, agencies, organizations, and the public.
- Prosperity, Health, and Resilience for All
- Collaborative and Inclusive
- Foster Innovation and Capacity Building
- Create Systemic Change
- Commitment to Equity and Diversity
- Support and Empower Existing Organizations and Efforts to Address Climate Change

Equity: Climate change and equity are interconnected. Low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous peoples and tribal nations, and immigrant communities suffer first and worst from climate disasters, yet produce the least GHG emissions. Drawdown: Marin acknowledges these communities have existed and still exist in Marin County and seeks to design and implement solutions with them. This requires internal and external on-going work to normalize, organize, and internalize equity principles and approaches including making the Drawdown: Marin solutions equitable and accessible.
