Establishment

The Sustainable Tacoma Commission works with the Office of Sustainability, which is responsible for implementing the strategies in the 2030 Climate Action Plan and measuring the city’s progress as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Both the Office and the Commission were created by a City Council resolution in October 2008. 

 

Membership

The Sustainable Tacoma Commission consists of thirteen members who are appointed by the Mayor and City Council. Membership is a balanced representation of stakeholders, such as the environmental community, small business, labor, housing, port, transportation, education, building industry, and residents.
