Apply to join the Sustainability Committee! Deadline: December 18, 2020.

As part of the Climate Emergency declared in October 2019 MODL is working with community members to develop a local climate change action plan, as well as complete the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program.

The PCP program was created in 1994 in order to guide municipalities through a 5 milestone framework to reduce their GHG emissions and reduce the impacts of climate change. PCP is managed and delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and currently has over 350 members.

The five milestones are:

  • Milestone 1 — Create a baseline emissions inventory and forecast
  • Milestone 2 — Set emissions reduction targets
  • Milestone 3 — Develop a local action plan
  • Milestone 4 — Implement the local action plan
  • Milestone 5 — Monitor progress and report results

MODL has now completed Milestone 1 for both the Community and Corporate stream, and is in the process of setting our reduction targets. Take our survey below to have your say on how much we should reduce emissions by!
