Our guest speaker today was Ian Picketts, Manager of Sustainability and Climate Change at the District of Squamish.
The District has developed a Community Climate Action Plan which has a target of reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 45% by 2030, and to be net carbon neutral by 2050.
The plan concentrates on Mitigation - actions that reduce GHG emissions. It will address 3 main areas - waste, transportation and buildings.
Work is under way on projects related to improving deconstruction practices, reducing embodied carbon in buildings, expanding our landfill gas collection system, constructing EV infrastructure and bringing a team of youth to Squamish to work on climate change projects over the summer of 2024..
