The Five Most Important Climate Solutions for City Councils in BC

1. Make a Sustainable Transportation Commitment

to aim for zero-carbon local transportation by creating ‘complete streets’ designed for all users, walkable neighbourhoods, and a world-class cycling environment; and by adopting world-class policies for transportation demand management, transit, ride-sharing, car-sharing, electric vehicles and freight.
