Every year, the RDBN tracks carbon emissions generated from corporate operations including waste hauling, building lighting and heating, and fleet fuel purchases. The total carbon emissions for the calendar year are submitted to the Province, keeping with requirements under the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP). This program provides funding to the RDBN equivalent to 100% of the carbon taxes paid (primarily on fuel such as gas or diesel) for each year that a CARIP report is submitted.

To find out more on what the RDBN has been doing to reduce carbon emissions, read the 2019 CARIP report here.
