The Cortes Climate Action Team
was formed by the Regional Director to recommend projects to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions on Cortes Island.
The team's responsibilities include a baseline GHG inventory, present the emissions inventory to the community and get input on actions for emissions reduction projects, and finally produce a report to the Strathcona Regional District, on best GHG emission reduction projects. Cortes GHG emissions
are summarized in the above chart. You can read the complete report describing the rationale, assumptions and details here: http://www.cortescommunityplan.ca/?page_id=94
The next step in this process is the Community Consultation to present the inventory and get community ideas about reducing our emissions. This meeting will take place on December 1st. Details will be announced shortly.
