The Bigger Picture

Create your climate action plan with PBB.

Governments must juggle numerous priorities with limited resources and organizational constraints, making it difficult to balance new budgetary needs. Priority-based budgeting (PBB) helps governments make data-driven decisions about where and how to invest finite resources toward climate action goals.

Aligning Climate Goals to Budget

Building a Climate Action Strategy

Communities everywhere are grappling with the consequences of climate change. To effectively tackle these challenges, governments must align financial resources with comprehensive climate action strategies.
By partnering with ResourceX and embracing PBB, governments can integrate climate action plans into the budgeting process. This alignment helps leaders better understand the financial implications of climate-focused initiatives, promoting a strategic and effective distribution of resources to address climate challenges and resident needs.

Creating a Shared Language

Traditional budget and finance units often operate on different wavelengths due to differing terminologies and priorities. PBB creates an opportunity for common understanding and a language that transcends these divisions. This harmonization is crucial as governments seek to allocate funds to their climate action plans while balancing the needs of residents and unbudgeted costs of climate change.

Through a unified language rooted in PBB, governments can drive operational improvements, enhance resident outcomes, and efficiently allocate resources. Climate-focused goals can be translated into budgetary terms and outcomes, helping leaders make informed decisions that align with environmental and financial objectives.

Advancing Action with Insights

By identifying programs with potential climate impacts, governments can focus on targeted improvements. For instance, examining the environmental impact of fleet, facilities, utilities, and other emission-related activities can lead to aligned enhancements. The program insights process within PBB empowers departments to creatively reallocate resources for climate action and generate innovative solutions to address budgetary constraints and climate-related goals.

As governments adopt data-driven strategies to combat climate change, PBB becomes a robust framework to advance environmental sustainability and fiscal prudence.
