Climate Action and Energy

As a mountain town, Whistler has long been concerned with the issue of climate change.

Our community and our economic engines have a special dependence on stable snow and weather patterns, making us aware of our shared responsibility to manage greenhouse gas emissions, and even more sensitive to the reality of the potential impacts if we do not.

Moreover, we now live in an era of climate responsibility and by extension this requires climate action; climate change is a certainty, as is human responsibility for it.

Reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is one of the most significant actions we can take as a community to take responsibility for our part in solving the climate crisis.

Energy Planning and Initiatives in Whistler

Whistler was one of the first communities in BC to develop a community energy and emission plan, set ambitious emissions reductions targets and now has more than 14 years of detailed monitoring and reporting data publicly available on its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions footprint.
