2012 marks the first year that local governments will be asked to report specifically on their progress in achieving carbon neutrality to the public and the Province in addition to reporting on general corporate and community wide actions.
The joint Provincial-UBCM Green Communities Committee held webinars in November 2012 to provide local governments with detailed information on the carbon neutral reporting requirements.
The webinar covers:
- Reporting requirements associated with each step of the carbon neutral framework (measure, reduce, offset and/or balance, report)
- Reporting timelines
- Where reports are submitted
Full guidance and downloadable reports are available on the Carbon Neutral page: http://toolkit.bc.ca/cnlg
