Environment

Our community and economy are founded and maintained in a healthy environment. With our goal to keep Burnaby a great place to live, work and play, we must focus on clean and sustainable practices that keep our environment strong.

Sustainable living is everyone's responsibility. Government, residents, business and visitors can all contribute. Burnaby is proud to take part in the Livable Action Plan, and committed to programs and initiatives that hold environment as a main priority.
