Reducing Our Impact on Climate Change

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Partners for Climate protection (PCP) program is a network of 240 Canadian municipal governments who have committed to reducing greenhouse gases and acting on climate change, of which New Westminster is an active member. 

The PCP program is based on a five-milestone framework:

1. Completing a greenhouse gas emission inventory
2. Setting a local emissions reduction target
3. Developing a plan to reach reduction target
4. Implementing the plan
5. Monitoring actions and results

New Westminster committed to reduce both corporate and community GHG emissions through the PCP program.
