Energy & Climate
Polar bears on a melting iceClimate Control & Energy Use
Issaquah takes climate change and the costs of energy use seriously: Our goal is to reduce our overall carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050.

Climate Control
From a risk standpoint, climate change is a significant security and social stability issue. What is different about this threat, however, is that much of it stems from our own behavior. But that’s the good news – we can do something about it, because it’s directly in our control.

Energy Use
Issaquah’s energy use and carbon emission sources are split almost equally between residential buildings, commercial buildings and vehicles. For this reason, the Office of Sustainability concentrates on reducing the impacts of all three areas – check out our Salmon Friendly Commuting, Green Building, and Saving Energy pages for more details.


EnergyEnergy and Climate Plan
The Office of Sustainability is creating an Energy and Climate Plan for the city. A draft of the plan will be available soon, when a series of public workshops will be held. This plan will provide a city wide road map for achieving its aggressive carbon / energy reduction goals.
