King County, WA

“In the last decade, the population in King County has grown by more than 10%, but emissions have remained flat. While we’ve seen an important decoupling of emissions and population growth, ICLEI’s Contribution Analysis showed that we need to do much more to phase in renewable energy sources, develop clean transportation options, and make our homes and buildings more efficient.”
