Washington D.C.

Back to All Cities

As the first U.S. city to join the BreatheLife network, D.C. is breaking national ground with its commitment to clean energy and clean air. The District’s ambitious action plan draws on solutions like reducing vehicle emissions, enhancing its renewable energy portfolio, reducing fugitive methane emissions, pursuing a net-zero energy use standard for new construction and more.

In just two and a half years, we have launched Climate Ready DC, entered into one of the largest municipal onsite solar projects in the U.S., and completed the largest wind power purchase agreement deal of its kind ever entered into by an American city. Today, I am proud to build on this progress by officially announcing the District’s designation as a BreatheLife city.
