The Clean Economy Strategy update (“CES 2.0”) aims to build on the foundation of the 2011 CES to create a new plan that reflects the latest science, is shaped by community input, and incorporates consultant recommendations refined through work with dozens of peer cities and tailored to Renton’s needs.

The IDT includes representatives the following departments:


  • Community and Economic Development

  • Renton Regional Fire Authority

  • Police

  • Finance

2019 Greenhouse Gas Inventory

As a part of the Clean Economy Strategy 2.0 update, the City conducted a 2019 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory as an update to its previous 2009 GHG inventory. This inventory is a quantitative data source that has informed the development of draft strategies and actions. 

Below are the result of the 2019 GHG inventory.

In summary, approximately 95% of Renton's communitywide emissions result from energy use and transportation. The use of energy sources such as electricity, natural gas, and fuel oil make up 55% of total emissions, while on-road and off-road transportation make up 40% of total emissions. The remaining emissions are a result of waste generation, wastewater treatment, and refrigerant usage.
