Re: Green Communities Climate Action Recognition Program – Electronic Logo File – Level 3: Accelerating Progress on Charter Commitments

Dear Chief Administrative Officer:

As a signatory to the Climate Action Charter (Charter), your local government has demonstrated its commitment to work with the Province and the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) to take action on climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in your corporate operations and the broader community.

As you may already be aware, the joint Provincial-UBCM Green Communities Committee (GCC) has established the multi-level Climate Action Recognition Program as a way of acknowledging the progress and efforts being taken by local government leaders as they work to achieve their climate goals.

As a Charter signatory who has achieved Level 1 and Level 2 recognition, and demonstrated significant climate action (corporately or community wide) to reduce GHG emissions for the 2016 reporting year, you have been awarded Level 3 recognition – ‘Accelerating Progress on Charter Commitments’.

A formal letter of recognition has been sent to your Council/Board acknowledging this accomplishment. The GCC is also very pleased to provide you with ‘green community’ branding for use on official websites and letter heads.

On behalf of the GCC, I would like to extend our congratulations to your local government for its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the 2016 reporting year and to wish your community continued success in its ongoing progress.

Jessica Brooks,
Executive Director
Intergovernmental Relations and Planning Branch
Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing
