Langley’s Greenhouse Gas Strategy



Township has achieved the first of five milestones

In January 2001, the Township of Langley joined the FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) Partners for Climate Protection Program. The program consists of five milestones designed to help local governments reduce their GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions.

When the Township of Langley hosted the second event in Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation in Metro Vancouver: The 2007 Series, this provided a timely opportunity to report out on the Township’s progress in implementing its Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan.

Ryan Schmidt, Environmental Coordinator,  described what the Township Langley6 - ryan schmidt (120p)has done in order to receive credit for the first three milestones under the FCM Program; and how the Township is currently working on four and five. The plan plots a corporate course for sustainability, and  sets an aggressive target for reducing Green House Gas emissions over the next several years.  Initiatives include a recently-certified LEED-silver Civic Facility, involvement in the E3 fleet certification program, and an anti-idling campaign.
