The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) has been committed to measuring the community’s energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission footprint since 2000.
The current community data set includes performance insights, trends and detailed estimates. See the monitoring data results.
Whistler has delivered a 17 per cent reduction in GHG emissions since 2007, primarily as a result of significant infrastructure projects (pipeline conversion, landfill management and increased organics recycling). To meet the GHG reduction targets, Whistler must conitnue to cut an additional 3,000 to 4,000 tonnes of GHG emissions each year until 2020. Currently, the main source of the community’s GHG emissions are passenger vehicles. There are a wide variety of sustainable transportation options in Whistler.
Each year the RMOW reports on the energy and GHG emissions performance for the Whistler community as well as the RMOW’s internal corporate operations.
The reports include performance data, key trends and insights, as well as benchmarks on performance against council-adopted targets. These reports are intended to support and inform the strategic management of energy and climate-changing emissions across the community.
