Climate & Clean Energy
The Climate and Clean Energy Work Team includes members of various Thurston Thrives action teams, along with community representatives, interested in addressing climate change and promoting clean energy within Thurston County. Its purpose is to coordinate and provide focus and accountability, among various community agencies and organizations, for work that addresses climate change and clean energy, especially as these efforts relate to public health. This group focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions through renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation.
Its goals are to improve coordination and visibility around climate change and clean energy, while developing a county-wide clean energy program proposal for presentation to the community and to elected officials. This will include an inventory of existing clean energy efforts.
