The Village of Pemberton explains, “We can see evidence of a warming planet every day. Any positive steps we take to tackle climate change is referred to as Climate Action. But in order to take action, we must first determine:

  • What are the biggest local sources of GHG emissions?
  • What volume of emissions do we create locally?
  • What bold actions can our community take to reduce our local production of GHG’s?

The creation of a Village of Pemberton Community Climate Action Plan will address these questions. We’ve started the process to develop a local plan. We have hired the Community Energy Association, a non-profit agency with much experience, to assist us in the development of this plan. We have reached out to key people and experts in our area for their help. And since it affects us all, we want everyone to be involved. To find out how you can be a part of the solution, contact Lisa Pedrini, Manager of Development Services at lpedrini@pemberton.ca
