Toward a Sustainable King County, the 2011 Annual Report of King County's Climate Change, Energy, Green Building and Environmental Purchasing Programs provides an integrated view of these interdependent, mutually beneficial programs.
The programs described in this report help to meet core objectives of the King County Strategic Plan to reduce climate pollution, prepare for the impacts of climate change, reduce the environmental footprint of government operations, and improve the financial sustainability of county government.
King County provides environmentally sustainable services such as transit, farm and forest land protection, salmon recovery, flood control, recycling, parks and regional trails. As highlighted in this report, the County’s role extends to climate change response, energy efficiency and renewable energy, green building and sustainable development and environmental purchasing. The 2011 Annual Report provides a summary of accomplishments, performance indicators, challenges and opportunities and recommendations looking forward.
