"The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is now able to neutralize its corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by purchasing carbon offsets locally as part of its broader Carbon Neutral Operations Plan. This is possible because of the recent signing of an agreement between the Cheakamus Community Forest near Whistler and the Province of British Columbia, which allows the community forest to generate and sell carbon offsets.

In 2009, the 32,000 ha Cheakamus Community Forest (CCF) was awarded to a partnership between the Municipality of Whistler, the Squamish First Nation and the Lil’Wat First Nation.

One of its first recommendations was that the principles of ecosystem-based management form the foundation for management of the licence, to meet a wide range of social and environmental goals, including maintaining long term carbon sequestration to address global warming.
