The CARIP Summary Report on Local Government Climate Actions 2017 is now available on the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing’s website. As demonstrated by the one hundred percent participation of Charter signatories in the CARIP program this year, and the extensive mitigation and adaptation actions reported in 2017, local governments are clearly committed to reducing their corporate and community-wide GHG emissions and addressing the impact of climate change. 

The Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) is a conditional grant program available to BC local governments that have signed the BC Climate Action Charter, thereby committing to take actions to become carbon neutral in their corporate operations and reduce community-wide emissions by creating more complete, compact and energy efficient rural and urban communities. Since 2007, increasing numbers of B.C. local governments have signed on to the Charter, demonstrating their leadership in addressing climate change.
