Zoning amendments to support Climate Emergency

As part of the Climate Emergency Response, we're committed to reducing Vancouver’s carbon pollution by building on and expanding on our existing work to fight climate change.

Nearly 60% of carbon pollution created in Vancouver comes from our existing buildings, primarily from burning natural gas for heat and hot water in our buildings. One of the Climate Emergency Response big moves commits that by 2025, all new and replacement heating and hot water systems will be zero emissions.

To make space for the zero emissions mechanical equipment, we want to hear from the public and those in the construction and design industry about whether our proposed actions is the best way forward.
