Carbon-Neutralizing Seattle by 2050

Posted: June 28th, 2013 by Brad

Seattle City Council voted unanimously on June 17 to adopt Seattle’s Climate Action Plan. The Climate Action Plan is composed of recommended actions to meet Seattle’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

“In the Energy & Environment Committee, we will begin exploring how to make energy use more visible to consumers and developing the tools we need to improve Seattle’s home and building energy performance,” said City Councilmember Mike O’Brien.

The Plan focuses on three sectors where the City of Seattle can have the greatest influence in reducing carbon emissions: transportation and land use, building energy and solid waste. The Plan also includes a section outlining how the City should prepare for the impacts of climate disruption we expect to occur, as well a section on actions individuals can take to reduce emissions through purchasing decisions.
