Confronting climate change

Climate change is one of the paramount challenges of our generation; in King County, we are no longer predicting the impacts of climate change – we are experiencing them. Guided by the Strategic Climate Action Plan, King County is taking comprehensive action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and prepare our region for a changing climate.

King County is committed to reducing GHG emissions by 25% by 2020, 50% by 2030, and 80% by 2050, which is a shared regional goal adopted by the Growth Management Planning Council.
