Whistler's Sustainability Journey
The Whistler community cares deeply for the environment and acknowledges that we all have a role to play in preserving the area's natural beauty. The Municipality's Big Moves Strategy sets out a plan to act on climate change and reduce emissions by 50% below 2007 levels by 2030, and in the long-term, reach net-zero.
To achieve this target, Whistler is collectively taking action to move beyond the car, reduce visitor travel emissions, decarbonize passenger and commercial vehicles, reduce building emissions, and shift towards lower carbon consumption.
Follow us on this journey as we connect with local people, businesses and organizations who are putting sustainability at the forefront of what they do. Through our Changemakers Series, our Whistler Insider blog and social media channels you can stay abreast of how Whistler locals are protecting what matters.
