CDP and Global Covenant of Mayors Reporting
The District joins cities around the world committing to climate action and transparent disclosure of climate action progress. Learn more about the CDP Cities and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. 2020 was the first year Saanich reported publicly, and was rated as an "A list" city through CDP in 2020, 2021, and 2022. We also are fully compliant with the Global Covenant of Mayors' adaptation and mitigation requirements.
