Plans and strategies for addressing the climate emergency

Our Corporate Plan (2019-2022) declares our intent to become a leader in climate emergency action, mitigation, and adaptation, and to continue to care deeply for our natural assets. 

Here are the key plans and strategies that are helping us reach our climate action and environmental health objectives.

Primary plans and strategies

Community Energy and Emissions Plan

The Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) will help us reduce our carbon emissions and become a more energy efficient community, while improving overall health and liveability.

Strategic Energy Management Plan

Our Strategic Energy Management Plan (SEMP) guides our work to achieve significant emission reductions within our own municipal operations well before the broader community target of zero emissions by 2050.

Integrated Stormwater Management Plan

We are developing an Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP) to guide how we deal with storm water, with the goal of balancing land use and development planning with environmental concerns.

Invasive Plant Management Strategy

There are over two dozen species of non-native invasive plants established in the District, and we are working to control them in areas where they can cause significant social, ecological, and economic harm.

Sea Level Rise Strategy

We are working proactively with our community partners to prepare, adapt, and respond to the risks of sea level rise caused by climate change.
