Description This report describes the comprehensive plan for Washington State to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and expand our clean energy economy. It presents a coordinated set of policies—including incentives, regulations, and disincentives to meet the GHG emission reductions that were adopted into law in 2008. The required reductions are:

*Return to 1990 GHG emission levels by 2020.
*Reduce emissions 25 percent below 1990 levels by 2035.
*Reduce emissions 50 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
