Greenhouse Gas Emissions

GHG Emissions

GHG emissions are produced when we operate municipal cars, fire trucks, street sweepers and lawn mowers, light up sports fields, municipal hall and streetlights and heat municipal swimming pools and municipal buildings.

Community GHG Emissions

By 2020, the BC Government has committed to reduce its GHG emissions by 33%, compared to 2007 levels. This target has been adopted by Maple Ridge into the Official Community Plan. The Community Energy and Emissions Inventory (CEEI) is an initiative of the BC Ministry of Environment.
