Metro Vancouver is implementing Climate 2050, a long-term strategy to achieve a carbon neutral and resilient region over the next 30 years. To help us get there, Metro Vancouver staff are developing discussion papers and seeking input on ten different climate action issue areas.
The Climate 2050 discussion paper on water and wastewater infrastructure is currently open for you to provide your input and ideas.
Proposed long-term goals for waste and wastewater infrastructure:
- Carbon neutral water infrastructure and operations
- Better than carbon neutral wastewater infrastructure and operations
- Water and wastewater infrastructure that is resilient to the impacts of climate change, including high temperatures, severe weather, floods, wildfire impacts and supply chain disruptions.
The Climate 2050 discussion paper on energy, which will be posted online soon, includes long-term goals for clean, renewable energy, and climate change adaptation.
Proposed long-term goals for energy:
- 100% of the energy used in the Metro Vancouver region is derived from clean, renewable sources.
- All regional energy infrastructure is resilient to the impacts of climate change expected during their life cycle, including higher temperatures, severe weather, floods and wildfire impacts.
Your feedback will help Metro Vancouver define the actions needed to reach the proposed long-term goals for greenhouse gas reduction and climate change adaptation in these areas.
Share your thoughts by submitting your ideas and insights by April 30. Read the discussion papers on Metro Vancouver’s website and provide feedback directly to our project team at Climate2050@metrovancouver.org.
