GCC Communique on the Climate Action Recognition Program

B.C. local governments continue to play a critical role in reducing GHG emissions across the province. In acknowledgment of the ongoing efforts of B.C. local government leaders, the joint Provincial-UBCM Green Communities Committee (GCC) is pleased to continue the Climate Action Recognition Program (Recognition Program) for the 2017 reporting year. This-multi-level program provides the GCC with an opportunity to review and publicly recognize, on an annual basis, the progress and achievements of each Climate Action Charter (Charter) signatory on their Charter commitments. Recognition is provided according to the following:
 
Level 1: Demonstrating Progress on Charter Commitments
Local governments who demonstrate progress on fulfilling one or more of their Charter commitments receive a letter from the GCC acknowledging their accomplishments.
 
Level 2: Measuring GHG Emissions
Local governments that achieve level 1, have completed a corporate carbon inventory for the reporting year and demonstrate that they are familiar with their community's community energy and emissions inventory receive a letter from the GCC and a 'BC Climate Action Community 2017 logo, for use on websites, letterhead, etc.
 
Level 3: Accelerating Progress on Charter Commitments
Local governments that achieve levels 1and 2 and demonstrate significant corporate or community-wide climate action to reduce GHG emissions in the reporting year receive a letter from the GCC and a 'BC Climate Action Community 2017 - Climate leader' .logo, for use on websites, letterhead, etc.
 
Level 4: Achievement of Carbon Neutrality
Local governments that achieve carbon neutrality in the reporting year receive a letter from the GCC and a 'BC Climate Action Community 2017- Climate Leader - Carbon Neutral ' logo, for use on websites, letterhead, etc.
 
To be eligible for the Recognition Program, local governments must fulfill the public reporting requirements (including reporting progress to carbon neutrality) of the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP). Recognition levels for the Recognition Program are based on the information included in each local government's annual CARIP public report.
