Whistler is making BIG MOVES for our climate. When we act together, Small Steps become BIG MOVES
Whistler’s Climate Action BIG MOVES Strategy identifies the six most impactful action areas we need to focus on as a community to reduce emissions and make Whistler a more climate resilient community. We all have a role to play! The RMOW, in partnership with Whistler’s environmental charity AWARE, has created "Small Steps for BIG MOVES"- 12 months of climate actions that each of us can take to support Whistler’s six BIG MOVES.
TAKE ACTION! This September, let's:
Transitioning to zero emission vehicles and electric mobility is key to achieving BIG MOVE #2: decarbonizing passenger and commercial transportation.
Electric modes of transportation are becoming increasingly available and British Columbians are leading the way in embracing e-mobility. With carbon taxes on fossil fuels set to increase over time, expansions in EV charging infrastructure, and subsidies for electric vehicles, there has never been a better time to consider electric!
This is good news because emissions from private passenger vehicle trips within the community are Whistler's biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions, creating 54 per cent of our carbon footprint.
