City of Williams Lake awarded Level 2 recognition through UBCM Green Communities Committee

The City of Williams Lake has received recognition as a Level 2 community under the joint Provincial-Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Green Communities Committee. The Climate Action Recognition Program was established as a way of acknowledging the progress and efforts undertaken by local governments as they work to achieve climate goals.

“The City of Williams Lake continues to demonstrate its commitment to work with the Province and the Union of BC Municipalities to take action on climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in both corporate operations and the broader community,” said Tara Faganello, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing in a letter to the City.

As a signatory of the Climate Action Charter, Level 2 recognition indicates that the City of Williams Lake has taken effective steps to fulfill its Charter commitments and additionally has completed a corporate carbon inventory and demonstrated its commitment and familiarity with the Community Energy and Emissions Inventory.

The City of Williams Lake will continue to work towards increasing its Climate Action Recognition level as it undertakes further projects and initiatives to achieve its climate goals.
