FVRD recognized as "Climate Action Community"

August 22, 2014

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) has been recognized as a ‘Climate Action Community’ by the joint Provincial-UBCM Green Communities Committee and awarded recognition for its effort to reduce corporate greenhouse gas emissions.

The FVRD shares a common understanding with the Province and UBCM that the effects of climate change are evident throughout British Columbia. Working together, the FVRD aims to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enable the Province to reach the targets outlined in the B.C. Climate Action Plan.

FVRD Board Chair Sharon Gaetz says, "As a signatory to the Climate Action Charter, the FVRD has taken steps to measure and reduce its corporate emissions and wants to set the stage for climate action throughout the region. We appreciate this recognition by the Green Communities Committee and hope that together local governments and other organizations can significantly reduce their environmental footprint."
