Climate Action

Community Climate Action Plan 

Adopted in June, 2021, the CCAP sets a course for reducing community emissions by 80% by 2050 while increasing our resilience to the impacts of climate change.

The CCAP’s eight strategic focus areas—called Big Moves—target community GHG emissions sources primarily from transportation fuels; energy use in buildings; and waste by promoting low-carbon growth, sustainable transportation options, zero-carbon buildings, and a circular economy.

Community Climate Action Plan Youth Art Project 

In spring 2021, as part of the community engagement for the CCAP, Sustainability Services staff presented to grade 9 artists from Westsyde Secondary School, who then interpreted the Big Moves through art and their personal reflections.

Climate Leadership

Upon becoming a BC Climate Action Charter signatory in 2007, the City pledged to significantly reduce both corporate and community-wide greenhouse gas emissions.

Each year, the City reports its annual inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated by municipal operations, as well as actions to reduce emissions, to the Province. To view our most recent report, see the 2019 Climate Action Revenue Incentive (CARIP) Public Report. The CARIP program is wrapping up and did not require a public report for the final 2020 reporting year.

We also strive to reduce emissions through implementing the Sustainable Kamloops Plan (SKP) and the Corporate Energy & Emissions Plan.

View the Sustainable Kamloops Plan 2016 Progress Update Report to review the progress made towards the initiatives and targets within the SKP plan.
