On October 3, the City Council unanimously passed a resolution that put Seattle on a path toward reducing our net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by the year 2050. Seattle is one of a handful of cities in the world to formally adopt carbon neutrality as a goal. The Office of Sustainability & Environment is responsible for updating the Seattle Climate Action Plan in the coming year and the plan will include strategies for reducing greenhouse gas reductions in the transportation, building energy and waste sectors.
As we start this work however, we need to hear from you. What are your ideas for how we can get to carbon neutral in the future? What strategies would you support?
Please take the Climate Action Plan survey now. It only takes 10 minutes and it’s important for us to hear from as many people as possible!
