Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP)

[Update: September 8, 2021: Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) Survey!]

Introduction

In April 2019, the City of Moncton joined cities around the world in declaring a climate emergency. Key components of Moncton's Climate Emergency Declaration include committing to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as understanding and identifying the resources necessary to achieve this goal.

The City of Moncton’s Climate Action Report outlined that the City must make it a priority to complete a strategic Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) that will guide Moncton's energy future and ensure that its GHG emissions are sufficiently reduced.

How you can participate

You're invited to fill out a survey. This survey will help the City understand your priorities and needs, and develop a CEEP that can be implemented successfully across the community.

There are five sectors that need to make “Big Moves” when it comes to emissions reduction: transportation, renewable energy generation, buildings, land use, and waste. This survey contains 25 questions, divided among these sectors.

    To whom it may concern. I have read the Climate Action Plan Report 2020 and thought it to be a good and broad approach. However, I would like to propose an alternative for the following two statements: Appendix B, where it reads "and have a vegetarian option." Appendix C, where it reads: Consider offering vegetarian or vegan options. I am all for offering vegetarian or vegan options; and that people have choices. However, I find it unacceptable under the guise of impacting the environment. Statistics Canada shows that Canada's TOTAL emissions for agriculture (both crops AND livestock), is less than 10%. https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/greenhouse-gas-emissions.html Going vegetarian/vegan brings its own environmental impacts: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200211-why-the-vegan-diet-is-not-always-green Lastly, going vegan would only make a 2.6% impact on GHG emissions: https://clear.ucdavis.edu/blog/what-if-united-states-stopped-eating-meat Ideally, I would like the statements mentioned above to be changed to reflect potentially limiting food waste instead. This could be accomplished by focusing on buying locally grown, produced, packaged foods and choosing those that are in season. Maybe buy in bulk and share? https://ourworldindata.org/food-waste-emissions Regards, Dan Fournier 32 Deerfield Dr. Moncton NB
