2020 Climate Change Mitigation Plan
Prince George City Council approved the City of Prince George's 2020 Climate Change Mitigation Plan on May 25, 2020. The Plan aims to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced by transportation, buildings, and waste in Prince George and preserving natural aspects of the community that absorb carbon, such as forests and wetlands.
The Plan includes updated greenhouse gas emission inventories, reduction targets, and actions that can be taken to achieve these targets. The 2020 Climate Change Mitigation Plan replaces the 2007 Energy and Greenhouse Gas Management Plan and sets a long-term goal of reducing GHGs by 80 per cent by 2050.
These targets align with the emissions targets set by the Province and are expected to be reflected in the next iteration of the Official Community Plan. The targets and actions were developed in consultation with several City Departments, external stakeholders and the public through workshops, referrals, public open houses, and an online survey. In all, about 800 community members participated.
