Climate Leadership Plan

Do you have ideas for moving our community towards renewable energy and low greenhouse gas emission (GHG) levels? We need your input on our Climate Leadership Plan, which will guide us for the next 10 years.

Like other cities and municipalities, we are going to focus on two themes: transitioning to a future of renewable energy and low GHG emissions.

We will consider what we hear while drafting the plan and inform you of when it is ready to be presented to Council so you can review it and share your thoughts with us.

The draft plan will be presented to Committee of the Whole on Monday, June 11, 2018.

    Goals

    The draft plan renews Central Saanich’s commitment to substantially reduce GHG emissions in community-scale and municipal operations with three ambitious targets.

    • Goal 1: 80% less community-scale GHG emissions by 2050, relative to 2007
    • Goal 2: 100% renewable energy community-wide by 2050
    • Goal 3: 90% less GHG emissions from municipal operations by 2050, relative to 2007.

    Action Areas

    This draft plan outlines action in five areas within the realm of responsibility and influence of the District:

    1. Transportation
    2. Buildings
    3. Solid Waste
    4. Municipal Operations
    5. Adaptation to Climate Change

    In addition, the draft plan highlights the importance of preparing the District and community members for changes to our climate; this includes preparing our infrastructure, social and economic systems and natural systems to handle these changes.

    To meet the goals, the District will require the support from senior governments, community members, industry and other partners.
