Regional Climate Mitigation Plan

Thurston County, Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater are working with TRPC on the first phase of a regional climate mitigation plan with actions to reduce the Thurston County region’s greenhouse gas emissions. 

Phase 1 of the mitigation plan, which began in spring 2018, includes the following components:
  • Assess each jurisdiction’s existing climate policy with an emissions-reduction goal.
  • Identify mitigation actions each jurisdiction has adopted and/or implemented.
  • Recommend a common, regional emissions baseline and targets for the 21st century.
  • Develop an interlocal agreement and scope of work for Phase 2, which will include a robust public-engagement strategy and an assessment of new or enhanced actions sufficient to hit the future emissions targets.
The mitigation plan is a companion to the Thurston Climate Adaptation Plan that TRPC adopted in January 2018. The adaptation plan includes 91 actions to help the region prepare for and adjust to climate impacts.
