Surrey – City of Surrey launched a survey to gather input from residents, community members and other stakeholders, to help shape Surrey’s new Climate Change Action Strategy.
The strategy will outline the City’s plan to meet bold targets, set by Surrey City Council last year, to reduce carbon pollution – also known as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – to net zero community wide and absolute zero corporate emissions before 2050. The strategy will focus on the areas estimated to make the biggest impact on greenhouse gas emissions, along with other community benefits, including:
- zero-carbon, resilient neighbourhoods
- safe, zero-carbon transportation
- healthy, zero-carbon buildings
- climate-positive, resilient ecosystems
- bold City leadership
The Climate Action Now Survey is open until the end of June, to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Surrey. The City will also be hosting a virtual open house, meeting with stakeholders, and providing other opportunities for input over the coming weeks. Staff will be incorporating input and additional analysis over the summer, and the full draft plan will be shared with the community in the Fall, prior to Council approval in late 2021.
