The proposed plan outlines a ten-year goal and actions to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across Pierce County government operations and the larger community and was developed with numerous community Sustainability experts and Pierce County stakeholders. Ongoing community engagement and updates are planned as we work together to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and improve the health of Pierce County residents and our environment.

Pierce County adopted the 2015–2020 Sustainability Plan to protect human and environmental health, limit waste and save money across the county. As we enter this new decade, we are committed more than ever to these efforts. 

The Sustainability 2030 plan outlines a ten-year goal and actions to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across Pierce County government operations and the larger community.
