The District of Clearwater achieved Milestone 4 for community greenhouse gas (GHG) emission from the FCM-ICLEI (Federation of Canadian Municipalities- Local Governments for Sustainability) Partner for Climate Protection (PCP) program. The award comes as a result of implementing actions to reduce emission in the community. The program consists of a five-step Milestone Framework, whose steps result in lasting and environmentally sustainable changes in municipalities. 350+ municipalities across Canada, are part of this free program helping to influence or control half the sources of Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By taking action, these municipalities have the opportunity to save money in municipal operations, lower energy costs for residents and businesses and increase investment in the local economy.
