Build it Right

Buildings are one of the largest and fastest-growing sources of Seattle’s climate pollution. They contribute over a third of total emissions – polluting our air and accelerating climate change, disproportionately harming communities of color. As the City of Seattle is updating its commercial and large multifamily building energy codes in 2020, we need to build it right from the start. Adopting these codes will drive innovation that leads to sustainable green jobs and significant reductions in climate emissions from buildings – moving our city closer toward a clean energy future.
