Seattle City Council Adopts Carbon Neutral Goal, launches Climate Action Plan process

On Monday, October 3, the City Council adopted Resolution 31312, putting the City on a path toward reducing Seattle’s net green house gas emissions level to zero by 2050.

The resolution also serves to launch the Climate Action Plan update. As part of the planning process, the Office of Sustainability and Environment will engage the community to help identify climate action priorities and convene technical advisory groups to analyze and recommend specific strategies for reducing the city’s greenhouse emissions in the transportation, building energy and waste sectors.

City residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in an online survey about transportation and energy choices, the two biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Seattle. The Office of Sustainability and Environment will also reach out directly to community groups to engage them throughout the planning process.
