Olympia City Hall, Council Chambers
601 4th Avenue E, Olympia
Thurston Regional Planning Council Presentation to Land Use & Environment Committee regarding greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. Attend meeting to show support for reducing GHG emissions. Carbon Free Thurston Campaign
During 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.
