Greenest City: A Renewable City

Greenest City is a bold initiative to address Vancouver's environmental challenges. While we live in what is widely recognized as one of  the most liveable cities in the world, our environmental footprint is currently three times larger than the Earth can sustain.

The decisions we make every day about how we move around the city, what we buy, and how we deal with our waste means that we currently use far more than our share of the Earth's resources.
