Implementation – Langley Carbon Trust Carbon offsetting is becoming popular among consumers who are concerned about the negative environmental effects of energy-intensive lifestyles and economies. A Langley Carbon Trust could be established to accept voluntary contributions (in the form of carbon credits) from individuals, groups and companies to help them become carbon neutral. Proceeds from the contributions could be invested in local projects to further the goal to nurture a mindset of sustainability in the community.
Implementation – Sustainability Checklist Township staff will work with the development industry to investigate the feasibility of introducing a Sustainable Development Checklist.
