Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Cranbrook is one of 182 local governments that have signed the BC Climate Action Charter. By signing this Charter, the City is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions, and receives funding through the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP). This funding supports the City’s efforts in:
• Working towards becoming carbon neutral in our corporate operations;
• Measuring and reporting on our greenhouse gas emissions; and
• Creating a complete, compact, energy-efficient community.
The City publicly reports on its plan and progress towards meeting its climate action goals. The 2015 CARIP Report summarizes the City’s progress in 2015, and the City’s plans for 2016.
