Bellevue is known as a "City in a Park," and through our Environmental Stewardship Initiative we coordinate and manage a range of programs to help protect the environment.
The city is in the process of updating the Environmental Stewardship Plan, to help chart the course for our future environmental stewardship efforts. The planning process will include multiple opportunities for residents to share their priorities and concerns related to the environment in Bellevue. Opportunities to engage with staff and make your voice heard can be found on the ESI Update Page.
Accomplishments and Progress
The Environmental Stewardship Strategic Plan includes 57 strategies for cutting greenhouse gas emissions and waste, increasing mobility options, energy efficiency and water conservation, and enhancing our ecosystems and open spaces. A full progress report on the ESI Strategic Plan was presented to the City Council in February 2019.
The Environmental Performance Dashboard provides up to date information on Bellevue's performance on environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, and water use.
