Buildings As Climate Action Team
Moving Forward on Climate Mitigation Plan, Healthy Building Challenge and Advocacy
Next Meeting, Thursday May 21, 3:30 – 4:30 pm
Since the last BACA Team meeting, TCAT and the NW EcoBuilding Guild have made big strides forward, with the support of the Bullitt Foundation: We are actively helping shape the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan (TCMP), and pushing for early action to fund and implement key Buildings and Energy actions in the Plan.
We have also completed initial planning of a proposed “Healthy, Zero Carbon Building Challenge” (working title), to call on the private sector to showcase climate-friendly building practices, and urge our local jurisdictions to adopt incentives outlined in the TCMP.

At our meeting next Thursday we will update the group on all these happenings, and chart our course forward toward. Agenda will include:
- Short education session on land use incentives
- Organizing a stakeholder roundtable to explore what package of incentives would help move the market toward carbon neutrality.
- How Federal Stimulus could be directed to kickstart healthy, zero carbon buildings for all
