Climate Action is a key provincial priority and local governments are key partners in helping to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create complete, compact and energy efficient communities.
The Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) reimburses the carbon tax for local governments who have signed the BC Climate Action Charter. These municipalities and regional districts annually measure the carbon footprint of their corporate operations and publish information about their corporate and community-wide sustainability actions each year. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is a signatory of the BC Climate Action Charter.
As part of this program, participating municipalities are required report publicly on their plan and progress toward their climate action goals. These reports outline those steps that a regional district or municipality is taking towards becoming carbon neutral. Below are the CSRD's Climate Actions and Carbon Neutral Reports
