Lake Country reducing greenhouse gas emissions

A level two award recognizes the district’s completion of a corporate carbon inventory

Lake Country has been awarded upgraded recognition by the Green Communities Committee for its achievements in reducing corporate greenhouse gas emissions for 2015.

Lake Country signed the Climate Action Charter in 2007, making a commitment to work with the provincial government and the Union of B.C. Municipalities to take action on climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the community and corporate operations.

The level two award recognizes the district’s completion of a corporate carbon inventory and familiarity with the Community Energy and Emissions Inventory.

“Our plan has allowed us to inventory all aspects of the municipal operation over time, identify cost saving areas and historic trends, as well as focus on those facilities needing the most attention,” said Mayor James Baker.
