Local governments from across B.C. have joined with the Province and the Union of BC Municipalities, to find ways to tackle the challenges posed by climate change, pledging to take action to significantly cut both corporate and community-wide greenhouse gas emissions.
The District of Clearwater signed on to the BC Climate Action Charter in 2008, and therefore has pledged to work towards becoming a carbon neutral corporation. Carbon neutrality will be achieved in three parts:
- Reducing the District's carbon footprint through corporate activities; reducing greenhouse gas emission through corporate activities and policies.
- Completing projects that have been qualified to offset greenhouse gas emissions.
- Purchasing offsets from an approved provider.
The recently adopted District of Clearwater Official Community Plan (OCP) includes the following objective: To reduce community-wide GHG emissions by 10% below 2007 levels by the year 2020, and 33% below 2007 levels by 2050.
The OCP outlines the District's policy statement that will provide leadership, guidance and assistance to the community as it works towards this objective.
Annual reporting is required of the District of Clearwater and will be posted when available on this webpage.
The Board of Directors Regular Meeting scheduled for Thursday, August 22, 2013 will be held at the Clearwater Legion Hall, 3-257 Glen, Clearwater, BC, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
