Read the Climate 2050 Strategic Framework
Metro Vancouver recently developed a draft Clean Air Plan to reduce air contaminant emissions over the next 10 years and support the goal of a carbon neutral region by 2050. Actions will reduce emissions from the largest sources in this region: buildings we live and work in, transportation of goods and people, and industrial sources.
The draft Clean Air Plan is available for comment April 1 through June 15, 2021.
Metro Vancouver and municipal governments around this region have been taking action on climate for twenty years.
