Greenest City: A Renewable City
Greenest City is a bold initiative that will address Vancouver's environmental challenges.
We want to live in a city that is vibrant and sustainable.
We value the beauty of our natural setting, and rely on the prosperity from our abundant natural resources. We want an environment that is healthy, and jobs that are rewarding and secure.
While we live in what is widely recognized as the most liveable city in the world, our environmental footprint is currently three times larger than the Earth can sustain.
The decisions we make every day about how we move around the city, what we buy, and how we deal with our waste means that we currently use far more than our share of the Earth's resources.
