The Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Committee is a Council Select Committee.

The mandate of the committee is to support and assist Council’s efforts with local climate change challenges, opportunities, and adaptation, as well as advance ways to mitigate the City of Powell River’s corporate and community greenhouse gas emissions.

Our recent sustainability initiatives include:

  • Recreation complex LED lighting retrofit
