Dawson Creek – BC’s first municipality to create a carbon fundSeptember 27, 2011
Dawson City is one of many BC municipalities that have voluntarily signed on to be carbon neutral by 2012, but it hopes to achieve neutrality without purchasing carbon offsets. To reach this goal the city is setting aside $100 for every tone of carbon produced from its government offices, recreation facilities and trucking fleets. That money will then be directed into projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The city expects to generate $360,000 annually for its carbon fund. Read more in the Vancouver Sun.
