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.
Climate Change Adaptation Strategy
Our Climate Change Adaptation Strategy will integrate new science and regional best practices to help us respond to the social, economic, and environmental impacts of climate change.
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.
