The City of Vancouver is currently in the process of developing a sustainability plan that outlines the city’s sustainability principles, goals, and strategies. The Green Ribbon Panel, composed of appointed citizens and city directors, was created in 2007 to establish the vision, mission, and principles guiding the plan. The draft plan, Creating a More Sustainable Vancouver, includes social equity as one of the five guiding principles in which it states: “Social and cultural equity and diversity contribute to a thriving and vibrant economy and environment.” Social equity is also one of the nine major goals in which the plan identifies indicators to monitor the status of each goal.
