What's next?Public consultation
In March 2019, Richmond City Council directed staff to gather feedback from residents and stakeholders on adopting GHG reduction targets and climate action strategies and measures consistent with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) recent report on limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
In June 2019, the City of Richmond hosted a Community Ideas Fair where attendees learned more about Richmond’s successes to date, explored available technologies and initiatives, and shared their ideas on what they think the City should prioritize.
Even with Richmond’s climate actions achieved to date, we need to implement additional actions to achieve our target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and ensure that Richmond continues to be a liveable, healthy and safe community.
The City of Richmond asks for your input to help shape and update the Community Energy and Emissions Plan. The first phase survey was available from July to August 2019. The second phase survey will be available in October 2019.

The City of Richmond will be moving forward with the next steps on updating the Community Energy and Emissions Plan after hearing ideas from the community from June to August 2019. In October 2019, we will be looking for your feedback on options and directions that the City could pursue to achieve deep GHG reductions in the community.
