The Local Climate Change Action Plan 2030 (LCCAP2030) is the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg’s response to the global climate emergency. Our climate is changing and the global temperature is rising rapidly owing to the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere. Moreover, Canada is warming twice as fast as rest of the world and the Canadian Arctic is warming at about three times faster than the global rate.[1] The detrimental impacts of climate change are widespread, intensifying, and require us to take an urgent action as a community.

The Municipality declared a climate emergency in 2019 and developed the LCCAP2030 as part of its commitment to act on climate change. The plan is a 10-year strategic action plan that provides the guiding framework for the Municipality to achieve net-zero GHG emissions by 2050 and support a climate-resilient, healthier, and sustainable future.

The LCCAP2030 is divided into the following two chapters:

Chapter 1 – Community Climate Action Plan: A plan that focuses on reducing GHG emissions within the boundaries of MODL (e.g., homes, offices, community vehicles), as well as building a climate-resilient community. The 10 main categories and 27 climate actions identified in this chapter will set forth a pathway for the Municipality to reduce its community GHG emissions and align itself with international efforts to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C and build a climate-resilient and sustainable community.

Chapter 2 – Corporate Climate Action Plan: A plan that focuses on reducing GHG emissions that are directly controlled by MODL (e.g., municipal operations and fleets). The 4 main categories and 10 climate actions identified in this chapter will set forth a pathway for the Municipality to reduce its corporate GHG emissions to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
