The Town of Princeton is committed to taclking the challenge of climate change. In 2010 Princeton joined other local governments in signing the Climate Action Charter; a commitment to find ways of reducing the Town's carbon footprint by 2012.
Princeton joined the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen and other local governments to develop corporate and community climate action plans to meet their voluntary commitments under the Climate Action Charter and legislated obligations under the Local Government (Green Communities) Statutes Amendment Act (Bill 27, 2008).
