Climate Action Plan

In 2010, the City adopted its first Climate Action Plan (CAP) to substantially reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The City hired local consultants in 2018 to prepare a new GHG inventory and advise the City on updating its CAP for 2023 and beyond. This updated plan focuses on the most important steps Edmonds can take to address climate change.

City Council adopted the 2023 Climate Action Plan on March 21st, 2023, via Resolution 1518. The 2023 Plan serves as Edmonds' guide to climate neutrality for municipal and community greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This goal aligns with the maximum average global temperature increase of 1.5ºC/2.7ºF aspired to in the 2016 Paris Climate Accords
