Climate Action Plan

Updated on November 17, 2021.

The City Council adopted the Burien Climate Action Plan on November 15, 2021.

This community-level Climate Action Plan is the first of its kind for the City of Burien and will act as a roadmap for Burien to mitigate and adapt to climate change impacts.

The Burien Climate Action Plan covers climate actions in five focus areas. The five focus areas concentrate efforts on the most impactful opportunities to:

  1. reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and;
  2. increase the ability to adapt to future climate impacts.

To achieve the goals and vision of the Burien Climate Action Plan, the City will need collective buy-in and collaboration from Burien’s residents, businesses, and City departments and leaders.
