Climate Action Program Report

Report Type

From 2011 to 2020, the District of West Vancouver participated in the provincial Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) to incent corporate greenhouse gas tracking and reduction.

The CARIP was a program that allowed municipalities to recover the money spent each year on carbon tax related to fossil fuels such as gas for fleet vehicles and natural gas for heating buildings. The annual reports provided below summarize both the yearly emissions and the actions undertaken by the District to reduce corporate greenhouse gases.

The CARIP program ended in 2021 but the District continued to track yearly greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with the 2021 report provided below.

In 2022, the government initiated a new program, the Local Government Climate Action Program (LGCAP), that provides local governments and Modern Treaty Nations with predictable and stable funding to support the implementation of local climate action that reduces emissions and prepares communities for the impacts of a changing climate.

The District continues to be required to complete annual reporting of GHG emissions and a survey outlining our climate action initiatives. The survey results are provided below.
