Ten months have passed since the city of Vancouver passed its road map to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions, and officials are inviting residents to learn about the effort’s progress.
Vancouver’s Climate Action Framework, approved December 2022, contains nearly 90 actions designed to reach carbon neutrality by 2040. Much of the work to date has been foundational. Municipal departments have hired climate-focused staff, developed community-centered climate programs and identified means to minimize the government’s carbon footprint.
The next framework review will take place in the coming years, though the progress report allows for slight adjustments if necessary.
Clark Public Utilities experts are expected to speak about clean energy efforts during the city’s first Vancouver Climate Pub at 6 p.m. Nov. 8 at Trap House Brewing. More details will become available closer to the event.
