Over 90 percent of building-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Seattle come from burning fossil fuels like gas and oil for hot water,
space heating, and appliances. The City of Seattle is committed to a clean energy future—free from the harmful public health and climate impacts of fossil fuels. Our goal is to reduce emissions from both public and private buildings by 40 percent by 2030, and be net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
