Gregor Robertson Will Tell French National Assembly President About Vancouver’s Quest to Become Greenest City

“I’ll tell the story of Vancouver’s quest to be the world’s greenest city and the generations of work that have positioned us well—and the big challenges that remain to achieve,” Robertson said.

Robertson noted that the largest single source of greenhouse gases in Vancouver is Central Heat Distribution Ltd., which burns natural gas to provide steam heat to many buildings in the downtown core. “They’re scoping out a big transformation of their whole heating system to renewables, making it possible for the downtown core to dramatically reduce the natural gas burned,” Robertson said.
