Washington has never waited for others to find solutions. We have a history of tackling problems others wouldn’t and taking on challenges as opportunities. Now it’s time to write the next chapter.

Washington is creating a new economy built on clean efficient energy. The choices we make now can propel us toward healthier communities and stronger economies across the state.

We want climate justice solutions that create:

    • Clean air, clean water, healthy food, and a healthy environment for all.
    • Connected communities with affordable healthy housing and clean transportation for all.
    • Livable wage jobs and workers’ right to organize for a safe, healthy and just work environment for all. 
    • Resilient and thriving communities, fisheries, farmlands, and waterways for all. 
Our climate solutions are guided by these principles:

 

Washington will lead the way to an equitable and just transition to a clean  and resilient economy by: 

 

  • Taking our future into our own hands by passing policies and making investments that effectively and deeply reduce climate pollution proportionate to the urgency of the climate crisis, as determined by science, community experience, and indigenous knowledge
  • Making sure every community throughout the state, has a stake in the benefits of a clean and resilient economy.
  • Ensuring that communities hardest hit by pollution and climate change have equitable representation at the decision making table, receive an equitable share of investments and benefits, and see a tangible reduction of pollution in their communities. 
  • Ensuring a truly just transition for workers and impacted communities during the transition to a clean and resilient economy, including through the creation of family sustaining, union jobs.
  • Helping energy intensive and trade exposed industries reduce carbon emissions in the state while maintaining a healthy environment for our communities.  
  • Recognizing tribal sovereignty and abiding by the law of free, prior, and informed consent.
  • Ensuring that policies to reduce pollution hold accountable those most responsible for causing the problem, do not disproportionately or unnecessarily increase costs for people with lower incomes and wealth, and provide financial assistance to low-income households to make low-carbon options available and accessible to all. 
  • Restoring and protecting our lands, forests, and waters for their intrinsic value, resiliency for our future generations, and as part of the solution to the climate crisis.
