Sustainability & Energy

The City of Surrey leads in sustainability and demonstrates this at every level. Our decisions and actions are guided by the Sustainability Charter, the City’s progressive 50-year vision for a sustainable community and overarching policy document.

We're following this Charter and ensuring Surrey remains livable and resilient by taking action on climate change across the community and demonstrating leadership in our own operations.

We’ve even developed an innovative online Sustainability Dashboard to let you track our progress across dozens of socio-cultural, economic and environmental indicators over time, demonstrating our commitment to Sustainability.

Sign up for our Sustainability newsletter to stay up to date on sustainability and climate news with the City of Surrey.
