In British Columbia, we're already experiencing the effects of climate change, such as extreme precipitation and an increase in average temperatures. As a result, we are committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the City of Port Moody. Each year, we take action on a number of levels to reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources and the production of air pollutants.

By joining the Federation of Canadian Municipalities – Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) and signing the B.C. Climate Action Charter we have committed to becoming carbon neutral. Port Moody has achieved PCP Milestone 4 – which means that through our Climate Action Plan Port Moody has established the baseline and forecasted GHG emissions from City operations and the broader community, has set ambitious emissions reduction targets, and is implementing a local action plan.

Climate action

Adopted by Council in summer 2020, Port Moody's Climate Action Plan is a community-wide plan that outlines actions to help the City and its residents adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) that contribute to the warming of the Earth. The Climate Action Plan helps us adapt to the changes we're already seeing, and reduce the impact of the changes that are yet to come.

See Climate Action Plan to learn more about our current implementation strategy.

Annual Climate Action Public Reports 

The Local Government Climate Action Program (LGCAP) provides local governments and Modern Treaty Nations with predictable and stable funding to support the implementation of local climate action that reduces emissions and prepares communities for the impacts of a changing climate. Review annual reports provided as a part of LGCAP funding: 2023 LGCAP Survey Submission (PDF).
