About Sustainable Seattle

Sustainable Seattle advances an integrated vision of urban sustainability by measuring progress, building diverse coalitions, and undertaking key initiatives.

We see an interconnected group of healthy, compact, livable urban centers across the Central Puget Sound region, where people work together to restore and improve the vitality of communities, the economy, and the environment.


  • We convene local and regional governments, businesses and the public to create a civic agenda that unites the region around long-term sustainability goals and actions:
  • We partner with urban centers and neighborhoods throughout the region to advance urban sustainability, share knowledge and create an interconnected sustainability network;
  • We develop indicators, provide original research, and serve as a clearinghouse of cutting-edge information and tools;
  • We provide education to leaders, residents, planners, developers and others involved in smart growth, green building and place making efforts, including transportation, public spaces, open spaces, civic dialogue, urban planning and design, community building, waste, energy and food security.
