[ARCHIVED] Sustainability 2030 Plan update before Council

Sustainability 2030 report cover

At a 1:30 p.m. special meeting Feb. 17, the Community Development Committee will begin its review of the Pierce County Sustainability 2030 plan, which outlines how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across Pierce County government operations and the larger community over the next 10 years.

Developed with numerous community sustainability experts and county stakeholders, the proposal before Council includes recommended actions to help achieve the stated goal of reducing emissions by 45% by 2030.

Five areas of focus outlined in the plan are:

  • Energy and the built environment
  • Transportation
  • Consumption and waste reduction
  • Carbon sequestration
  • Education and outreach

Following committee review the plan will go to the full Council for consideration. It is currently scheduled for the Council’s March 9, 2021 regular meeting. That date could change, pending Committee action.
