Climate Action Plan

Updated on October 11, 2021.

The City of Burien is preparing its first Climate Action Plan to reduce community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and prepare for climate impacts like poor air quality from wildfires, increased flooding, and extreme heat. The Burien Climate Action Plan will establish actions the city and community can take to reduce GHG emissions associated with transportation, building and home energy use, and solid waste generation. The Burien Climate Action plan will also propose strategies to increase community resilience and keep Burien a sustainable community.

In late 2019, the Burien City Council adopted the updated King County-Cities Climate Collaboration (K4C) joint letter of commitment which establishes GHG emissions reduction targets for county wide sources by at least 50 percent by 2030, and 80 percent by 2050, compared to a 2007 baseline.

Accomplishing the goals of the CAP will require cooperation of City staff, businesses, and residents that make up our Burien community.
