Past Accomplishments, Newest Project

NWCSI was born in 2009, out of concern for our long-term energy future, rising sea levels, worsening weather, and improving stewardship of the Earth.  During the past decade, NWCSI’s energy efficiency project has resulted in energy audits and efficiency upgrades for over 2500 homes and businesses,  providing energy savings and carbon emissions benefits to owners, occupants and the public.  NWCSI’s Educational Programs have fostered deeper understanding of risks to long-term energy and food supplies, as well as climate risk.  NWCSI’s work with the City of Seattle’s Energy Benchmarking Program helped businesses and multi-family housing projects become more energy efficient.

At present, NWCSI is putting its unique skills and experience into an ambitious program: assisting organizations, households, and individuals to take affordable, effective steps to reduce climate risk.  Whether that risk is from sea level rise, weather-related damage, supply chain problems, or other issues, NWCSI provides customized assistance. We assist our members to determine how to develop resilience, in the face of today’s fast-paced change.

NWCSI is ready to work with businesses to secure leadership for a strategic approach to risk and resilience.

We also work with other organizations, households, and individuals.   Our goal is to work with everyone we can, to better manage risk, develop resilience, and create a sustainable future.
