Clean Air Plan will identify and prioritize actions to reduce air contaminant emissions and impacts, including greenhouse gases, in our region over the next 10 years and support the transition to a carbon neutral and climate resilient region by 2050.
Clean Air Plan Backgrounder, Metro Vancouver proposes the following as 2030 regional targets:
- reduce regional greenhouse gas emissions by 45% from 2010 levels;
- ambient air quality in the region meets or is better than ambient air quality objectives and standards set by Metro Vancouver, and the BC and federal governments; and
- increase the amount of time that visual air quality is classified as excellent
The Plan will be organized around seven issue areas. The first five focus on the largest regional sources of air contaminant emissions. The sixth relates to the impacts of nature and ecosystems on air contaminants, and the final issue area will describe tools to measure and reduce emissions and manage air quality in our region.
- Nature and Ecosystems
- Measurement, Monitoring and Regulation
