Climate Action Plan

Climate Action Plan Town Hall Meeting

The City has drafted a new Climate Action Plan to meet the bold goal of carbon

neutrality by 2050. Your input is needed to craft the final plan that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, helps the city prepare for the impacts of a changing climate, and makes Seattle an even better place to live.

The draft Climate Action Plan is now available for your review and comment. The plan is available here. If you have any feedback, you can reach Councilmembers by emailing

The Green Ribbon Commission
To help us create the best possible plan, we asked the Green Ribbon Commission, a group of 26 community, environmental, and business leaders, to recommend actions to include in the new Plan. The Commission's recommendations included both short-term actions that we can get moving in the next few years, and longer-term actions that will not only help us reach our goals but will also help make Seattle more resilient, equitable, prosperous, environmentally sustainable, and an all-around great city.

We worked with a number of sector experts and community leaders through the formal Technical Advisory Groups and the Green Ribbon Commission. We also reached out to a wide range of residents to solicit feedback on the developing recommendations. Outreach has included participating in community meetings, targeted outreach to under-represented communities, and an online survey.

Community Outreach: TAGs Recommendations Fall 2011 - Spring 2012, GRC Recommendations Spring 2012 - Fall 2012, Public Comment on Recommendations Early 2013. Seattle Climate Action Plan Adopt Spring 2013.
