ECOSS connects diverse communities with clean energy solutions.

Our Carbon Footprint

The two largest sources of carbon emissions in Seattle are transportation and buildings. And these emissions have already decreased Seattle’s air quality, intensified heat waves and more.

Immigrants, refugees and other communities of color as well as low-income communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change. But these communities also have disproportionately less access to climate solutions.

Clean Energy Solutions

ECOSS partners with organizations working on clean energy to discuss concerns around owning electric vehicles and installing solar power. Our work includes hosting public listening sessions to learn about community members’ concerns, answering questions about these clean energy solutions and helping people decide whether they would like and are able to invest in these technologies.

The City of Seattle is striving to be carbon-neutral by 2050, and it’s going to take everyone working together to achieve that goal.

Our work in clean energy is generously supported by Forth Mobility and Spark Northwest.
