Vancouver is Canada's greenest city, has the smallest per capita carbon footprint of any city in North America and is industry-recognized front runner in green building, planning and technology. The Greenest City 2020 Action Plan incorporates improvements to building design, increased access to nature, cleaner air and water, an emphasis on locally grown ingredients and other lifestyle changes. Not ready to settle to be the greenest city in the world by 2020, the city of Vancouver is looking further and in 2015 announced that it is now aiming to be 100% powered by renewable energy by 2050.

Green Growth and TRAVEL-ISM: Vancouver

Surrounded by a panorama of mountains and ocean, Vancouver ranks among the greenest and most livable cities in the world. But though the city is already known internationally as an environmental leader, the City of Vancouver have pledged that by 2020 Vancouver will be the world’s greenest city. Residents and civic leaders are making a strong start: Vancouver is already Canada’s greenest city, has the smallest per capita carbon footprint of any city in North America and is an industry-recognized front runner in green building, planning and technology. Drawing 90 percent of its power from renewable sources, Vancouver is a leader in hydroelectric power and is charting a course to use wind, solar, wave and tidal energy to significantly reduce fossil-fuel use. Most importantly, residents can freely enjoy the city’s sprawling green space with 200 parks and more than 18 miles of waterfront. Determined to address and rectify environmental challenges while creating green jobs and strengthening the community, the City of Vancouver has reached significant milestones and created environmentally friendly alternatives for nearly every facet of residents’ and visitors’ day-to-day living.
