Richmond’s riparian and shoreline conservation areas sequester large amounts of below-grade carbon in peat soils and ancient eelgrass beds.


This engagement project has concluded. It ran from August 17 to September 26, 2021. Thank you to everyone who participated.


We want to hear your thoughts about Richmond's proposed Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) 2050.

This plan identifies multiple proposed actions within eight strategic directions to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, and effectively reach net zero emissions by 2050.

Richmond’s emission reduction targets for 2030 and 2050 are shown below, with a percentage reduction from 2007 -- our emissions baseline year.

The CEEP 2050 builds upon Richmond’s achievements and climate action to date and provides a roadmap to achieving the deeper greenhouse gas emission reduction targets set by City Council in 2019 (green trend line). Implementing the actions will also improve Richmond’s resiliency to the effects of climate change and support the City’s equity, affordability and sustainability goals.

To learn more and provide feedback on proposed actions for each direction:

  • Click on the survey below, read through the climate actions and give input throughout the survey.
  • For more details, click on the right side buttons to open two-page summaries of each direction.

The survey is available until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Feedback received will be incorporated into the final Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) 2050 presented to Council in fall 2021.

We appreciate you taking the time to give us your input.
