2011 Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) Report

December 23, 2011

The 2011 Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) Report is now available. The report outlines actions completed over the past year, and actions proposed for 2012, to reduce community-wide and corporate greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Esquimalt.

CARIP is a conditional grant program that provides funding to Climate Action Charter (Charter) signatories equivalent to 100 percent of the carbon taxes they pay directly. In 2010, the Township of Esquimalt received a CARIP grant of $19,262. This funding supports local governments in their efforts to reduce GHG emissions and move forward on achieving their Charter goals.

As a signatory to the Climate Action Charter, the Township of Esquimalt agrees: 

    (1) To become carbon neutral in its operations by 2012; 

    (2) To measure and report on the community’s GHG emissions; and 

    (3) To create a complete, compact, and energy-efficient community.

To be eligible for the conditional grant, local governments must report publicly on their plan and progress toward meeting their climate action goals by December 31st of each year.
