The Redmond City Council approved a Climate Emergency Declaration (Declaration) during the October 6, 2020, Council meeting. The Declaration establishes a goal of carbon neutrality for City operations by 2030 and other key climate and sustainability commitments.

The Declaration was developed collaboratively by the City Council and highlights 13 key objectives, including a goal of zero waste of resources across City operations, adoption of green building standards for new City facilities and new construction, and a commitment to prepare a climate vulnerability assessment.

The Declaration will be integrated into the Environmental Sustainability Action Plan and serves to highlight and expedite key Council policy priorities as the City begins implementation of the Plan.
