Climate Smart Program

The City of Pitt Meadows is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Metro Vancouver to support local businesses and contractor's participation in the Climate Smart program. The goal is to enable carbon reductions on a community-wide scale while helping private businesses reduce energy and material use, solid waste generation, and operating costs.

Through hands-on training and software, the Climate Smart program helps businesses track their carbon emissions, develop strategies to cut costs, improve operational efficiencies, and gain a competitive edge. Businesses leave the program equipped with metrics and data to include in RFPs, tenders and applications for funding. The Climate Smart program also helps participating businesses navigate and access local utility incentives and rebates.

Verde Flower & Plant Design, Stomping Grounds Coffee House, Pitt Meadows Golf Club, Becker & Company Lawyers and Drs. Bing and Henderson have registered as our first local businesses in the Pitt Meadows area to sign up for the Climate Smart program.  They have received up to $1,000 subsidies  to participate in the program which consists of three (3) half day sessions. Congratulations and we look forward to establishing a working relationship with you! They are all very excited to be part of a green community initiative and join a growing network of BC businesses that are developing fuel, waste, and operational efficiencies with a green twist.
