Thurston Board of County Commissioners – Work Session

June 7, 2018 - 11 AM
Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, Room 280
2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia

Thurston Regional Planning Council and Thurston Public Health and Social Services presentation to County Commissioners regarding greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. Attend meeting to show support for reducing GHG emissions. Carbon Free Thurston CampaignDuring June, elected bodies for the Cities of Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater, as well as for Thurston County, will consider and hopefully approve common targets for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions community-wide.  The targets being recommended by city and county staff, and presented by Thurston Regional Planning Council to each of these bodies, are to achieve a 45% reduction below 2015 levels by 2030 and an 80% reduction below 2015 by 2050.  These are in line with the Sustainable Thurston target of 80% reduction in GHG emissions by 2050. Attending these sessions to show support for these levels of reductions in GHG emissions, as the minimum required to set us on a path to the reductions scientists tell us are necessary, will help bolster the officials’ political will and commitment to strong climate action.
