King County climate action
Tackling climate change is our priority
The Proposed 2020 Strategic Climate Action Plan (SCAP) is here!
King County is updating its Strategic Climate Action Plan in 2020 that outlines the County’s actions on climate change for the next five years. The 2020 SCAP will focus on reducing regional greenhouse gas emissions, preparing for climate change impacts, and supporting resilience in communities disproportionally impacted by climate change.
King County Executive Dow Constantine transmitted the proposed 2020 SCAP to the King County Council on August 27, 2020. The County Council will review and schedule public hearings to consider adoption of the SCAP this fall and winter. Read the full news release of the 2020 SCAP. Learn more about the 2020 SCAP update.
King County’s Climate Action Toolkit for Cities
Thank you for your input on the King County Cities Climate Collaboration Toolkit! The online survey is closed now, and we are reviewing your comments. Thank you for your interest in the Toolkit, which will provide guidance on a mix of actionable and practical strategies that fit cities with different types of land use, population, energy supply, and transportation patterns. The recommendations of the Toolkit, framed in the updated K4C Joint Commitments and King County’s 2020 Strategic Climate Action Plan, will help guide cities that are just getting started in climate planning, as well as those seeking to move farther and faster. The Toolkit will be transmitted to the King County Council in September. Please sign up for our newsletter to stay informed of the latest news.
