Abstract

King County Cities Climate Collaboration (K4C) has partnered with Climate Solutions’ New Energy Cities program to help the region implement actions towards shared and ambitious climate targets. Against a baseline of 2007 emissions, the new Growth Management Planning Council policy targets a reduction of countywide sources of greenhouse gas emissions of 25 percent by 2020, 50 percent by 2030, and 80 percent by 2050.

Through the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration (K4C), county and city staff are partnering on:

  • Outreach – to develop, refine, and utilize messaging and tools for climate change outreach to engage decision makers, other cities, and the general public
  • Coordination – to adopt consistent standards, benchmarks, strategies, and overall goals related to responding to climate change
  • Solutions – to share local success stories, challenges, data and products that support and enhance climate mitigation efforts by all partners
  • Funding and resources – to secure grant funding and other shared resource opportunities to support climate related projects and programs
