Greenest City: A Renewable City
Greenest City is a bold initiative to address Vancouver's environmental challenges. While we live in what is widely recognized as one of the most liveable cities 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.
Greenest City is a bold initiative that addresses Vancouver's environmental challenges.
We have committed to becoming a renewable city with 100% of our energy coming from renewable resources by 2050.
We're developing a zero waste plan for managing the flow of resources and garbage in the coming years, and we need your help.
