Municipalities in BC have pledged to reduce their community-wide greenhouse gas emissions.

Households directly account for 40% of BC’s total greenhouse gas emissions, and Central Saanich is committed to working with residents to improve our homes and infrastructure.

All levels of government, industry and the public must work together to reduce emissions and respond to climate impacts.

Climate Action in the Community

Over the past few years, the District has ramped up our goals and initiatives related to climate action. We’re constantly making improvements, introducing policies, and implementing initiatives – and we want to make sure you get the opportunity to learn about them and the benefits they bring to our community. 

These snapshots cover a wide range of actions - buildings & infrastructure, transportation, materials & waste, lands & ecosystems, and climate adaptation - and highlight project benefits such as energy & fuel savings, GHG emissions reductions, active transport and transit, electric vehicles and e-bikes, recycling and composting, reducing printing & paper use, sustainable procurement, ecosystem rehabilitation & parks enhancements, tree planting… so many areas!

Residents are also encouraged to submit their own stories on improvements they've made to their own residence or place of work.
