The beginning of Net Zero in Ashland

Ashland has a robust history of sustainability initiatives. In November 2019 at Town Meeting, Ashland passed a  Net Zero Resolution committing to achieving Town-wide greenhouse gas emissions of net zero by the year 2040. By enacting this Resolution, Ashland has joined the dozens of Municipalities across the Commonwealth which have recognized the need for emissions reductions by embarking upon the path to Net Zero.
