2018 Final Report
The City of Richmond has completed the 2018 Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) Public Report, and 2018 Carbon Neutral Progress Report, as required by the Province of BC. The City expects to achieve Carbon Neutral corporate operations recognition as per Provincial reporting framework for 2018, which is typically awarded by the Green Communities Committee in September.
The CARIP report summarizes actions taken in 2018 and proposed for 2019 to reduce corporate and community-wide energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as summarize other general sustainability related initiatives. The Carbon Neutral Progress Report indicates corporate operations emissions values for 2018 and quantified carbon credits, which are used to offset corporate emissions to achieve Carbon Neutrality.
The City is proud to have completed the carbon credit quantification of the Sun Hor Lum (Northeast Bog) Conservation Area Preservation for the 2018 reporting period. This property contains some of the last remnants of the natural Richmond Lesser Lulu Island Bog habitat located in Richmond, and the northeast portion was purchased in 2011 to ensure its preservation and carbon storage capacity. Quantifying this type of land and conservation activity is a first in BC, and clearly demonstrates the added value that preserving this type of habitat provides. The project provided the City with over 3,800 tonnes of emission credits to offset corporate emissions.
