Representing Diverse Communities in the Kootenays
In response to the Board declaration of climate action imperative, the RDCK now produces an annual report to:
1. Help the RDCK track the progress towards its climate action objectives and targets
2. Evaluate and improve its climate action initiatives and efforts
3. Maintain public transparency on these processes
4. Demonstrate climate action leadership
By tracking and reporting on climate action, the RDCK will also be able to find ways to streamline its efforts, achieve co-benefits through integration and collaboration between projects and initiatives, and optimize the use of time and resources.
