The City of Mission has a history of awareness of the importance of taking action on slowing climate change. In 2007, the City of Mission participated in the largest single day signing of the Mayors’ Climate Protection Agreement to advance the goals of the Kyoto Protocol.
Following the signing, a Sustainability Task Force formed to advance these goals. The Task Force’s mission was “to provide a prioritized action plan to serve as a model of sustainability for our local government, citizens and surrounding communities that encompasses People, Planet and Prosperity.” which led to the creation of the Sustainability Commission in 2009 which continues today.
