Climate Action Progress Reports
Climate Plan Report Card
The Climate Plan: 100% Renewable and Resilient Saanich, adopted in January 2020, includes a commitment to annual progress reporting. We will be monitoring our progress on climate action and presenting this annually to Council in the form of a Climate Action Report Card.

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, along with 88 other leading cities worldwide. We also are fully compliant with the Global Covenant of Mayors' adaptation and mitigation requirements.
