Group of people holding up the earth in the spirit of sustainability and climate action.

The City of Vancouver is preparing a greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory and climate strategy report to guide the city toward a low-carbon future that sustains a high quality of life for residents. A cornerstone of this process is to ensure inclusivity and equity. The City is committed to providing an open and inclusive community engagement process with ample opportunities for residents, businesses, and other community partners to provide feedback and participate in the planning process.

Why should I participate in the climate strategy development process?

This is an early opportunity to tell us your priorities and concerns as it relates to creating a more resilient city, and developing community practices and policies related to sustainability and climate change.

Why is the climate strategy being developed now? What is its purpose?

Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, energy use, land use change, and other sources are changing our climate in ways that could put the community at risk. Projected changes in temperature, snowpack, severe storms and wildfire risk could threaten City infrastructure, natural resources and public health. By taking action to reduce the City’s emissions and prepare for climate risks, the City will position itself to be ahead of the curve and protect the health and well-being of our residents and economy.

How will my input be used?

Community input will be considered along with input from City staff, committees and partners throughout the planning process. We will use input from all stakeholders along with available data, literature, lessons learned and known best practices to develop the climate strategy. Specifically, your input will inform the climate strategy’s overarching goals, vision and targets; sectors of focus; and strategies.

So how ironic that during yet another crazy wildfire season this summer we were supposed to avoid the outdoors. To not experience the smoke and the dimming of the sun and its warmth. Instead we plug in our new air purifiers and use the car instead of the bike, quietly adding more CO2... Continue reading
