Snohomish County is working hard to make its operations more environmentally and economically sustainable. The Sustainable Operations Action Plan (SOAP) guides its efforts and renews the commitment to take action on climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from government operations. The comprehensive 5-year plan was unanimously adopted by County Council on September 3, 2013, and on September 24, 2013 County Executive John Lovick issued Executive Order 13-48A regarding Climate Change and the County's Sustainable Operations Action Plan.
