University of British Columbia presents: Hammers and Nails: Strategies for Addressing Climate Change in BC Communities
Prince George’s built environment is directly responsible for approximately 33% of the city’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, the real impact of the built environment is much larger then that, when you consider that transportation choices and emissions are also strongly influenced by the configuration of our communities. The Provincial Government has set targets for municipalities to reduce their GHG emissions by 80% (from 2007 levels) by 2050, and cities such as Victoria and Vancouver are developing even more aggressive targets. This talk will discuss strategies for reducing energy use and GHG emissions in the built environment, with a focus on strategies that apply to Prince George, and strategies that individual citizens and community groups can influence. The talk will conclude with a brief introduction to research being conducted as part of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions’ Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment Project, that is investigating energy and emissions futures for BC communities.
