Strategies & Actions
A. The Hub identified 2020-30 Strategies, which are doable and essential if the City of Seattle is going to achieve its goals for 2030 and beyond.
B. The Hub chose 2021 Actions based on the following criteria*:
1. The action can significantly contribute to reduction of GHG emissions in Seattle and King County.
2. Support for the proposed action is needed to overcome political opposition.
3. Together with allies, we can increase the probability that the action will happen in 2021.
* Collaboration partners may have their own priorities which would guide what lobbying actions they recommend to others and what recommended lobbying actions from others that they choose to support.

Predicted Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions
Some policies at the Federal, State, or local level to reduce greenhouse gas emissions have already been put into law, and will start to have an effect.
The State Clean Fuel Standard mandates a 20% reduction in carbon intensity of fuel by 2038. PSRC projects this will be a reduction of at least 10% by 2030.
Move Ahead Washington sets a goal of eliminating gas-powered vehicles by 2030. PSRC projects that by 2030, 65% of new vehicles sold in the state will be electric.
The Climate Commitment Act places a cap on the carbon emissions that the State estimates will cause an economy-wide 26% reduction in emissions by 2030.
