Officially named "The Green Ribbon Community Climate Change Advisory Committee" by City Council, this group of important community leaders were brought together to investigate options to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions.

The Green Ribbon Committee's Community GHG Emissions Reduction Action Plan was released in January 2004. The Green Ribbon Committee has also developed Regina's Green Book $mart Ways to Save to show you different ways to save money and energy at home, at work and on the road. This will move Regina towards achieving City Council's commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions in the geographic area of Regina by 6% of 1990 levels by 2012.
