Seattle Updates Climate Plan
This Earth Day, Seattle’s Office of Sustainability and Environment published an updated Climate Action Plantoward climate neutrality by 2050. The plan focuses on transportation, waste and building energy efficiency and also calls for a 29% reduction in building energy use by 2030. Emerald Cities Seattle applauds the plan’s equity measures. “To ensure building energy actions promote shared prosperity, race and social equity goals must be considered fundamental to the design and implementation of building energy strategies,” the plan states.
