Coquitlam developed a Community Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategy (PDF), effective March 2012. This initiative builds on the City’s existing Corporate Climate Action Plan and looks at opportunities to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions across the broader community.
In 2010, the City integrated community greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets into Coquitlam’s Official Community Plan. The Community GHG Strategy builds on community input, analysis and background of the 2010 Official Community Plan amendment process and strengthens guidance for more detailed planning and policy development moving forward. Importantly, the Strategy also sets up a framework to monitor strategy actions and key indicators of progress.
