Preliminary Climate Action Strategies Released

The Seattle Climate Action Plan Technical Advisory Groups presented their preliminary recommendations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation, land use, building energy and waste sectors to City Council on Monday, April 23, 2012.

The Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) are comprised of experts in the transportation, building energy, waste and land use and were convened to analyze and recommend a wide range of greenhouse gas reduction strategies in those sectors. The TAGs also helped identify short and long term goals and funding mechanisms for the strategies identified in the plan. Their recommendations can be found here.

OSE welcomes comment from the public on these recommendations. These recommendations are just the first phase of the climate action planning process.  This work will be taken up by a Green Ribbon Commission for further evaluation and analysis. The Green Ribbon Commission will consider all public comment on these preliminary strategies and will release their final recommendations in the fall.
