Corporate Climate Policies


​​​​​Climate 2050 is closely linked to Metro Vancouver’s other plans and policies. For example, a series of Board supported policies guide decision making for the corporation, and some of these policies specifically enable climate action. Metro Vancouver’s current climate-related policies are provided below.

Any questions a​bout these policies can be directed to the Climate 2050 project team​.​​
