Climate change is already affecting our communities. Impacts like hotter summers, wildfire smoke, and flooding endanger our homes and affect public health and local business. 

Thurston County and the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater are partnering to reduce climate polluting greenhouse gases while maintaining - and even improving - our quality of life.

Let's work together to save energy, act on climate change, and build a stronger community.


“Thurston County, Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, and neighboring tribes recognize the urgent threat and opportunity that climate change poses to our community’s economy, public health, public safety, and environment. We will work together to identify and boldly implement the most effective, efficient, and equitable actions to reduce locally generated greenhouse gas emissions to protect current and future generations from the most severe impacts of climate change. 

In addition to doing its part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Thurston County region will remain resilient in the face of climate change impacts during the 21st century and beyond.”
