Climate Action

Penticton’s Community Climate Action Plan outlines a path to reduce our community’s carbon pollution. This plan helps lay the foundation for individuals and businesses to make cleaner climate choices, ensuring our city continues to be a healthy place for us – and future generations.

City Council endorsed the plan on Nov. 16, 2021, putting us on track to reduce our emissions by a projected 40 per cent below 2007 levels by 2030. This page details our goals moving forward.
