Why make a climate plan?

Carrying out a climate plan means making sure that your municipality is in agreement with climate science, by building and implementing reduction and adaptation actions in collaboration with your services.

It aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to limit the impact of the territory on global warming as well as to adapt the municipality to various changes to reduce its vulnerability. This plan is based on carrying out a carbon footprint linked to the assets and the exercise of the authority's skills. The approach is intended to be participatory and inclusive in order to bring together all the stakeholders.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The methodology takes place in 4 stages :

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

  • a diagnosis making it possible to take stock of the initiatives in place, the risks and opportunities and the assessment of expectations;

  • the creation of the plan thanks to quantified objectives in space and time;

  • action to ensure the deployment of measures

  • success monitoring by means of indicators.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The areas studied cover the main skills of the local authority, namely: energy, mobility, agriculture, etc.

The subsidies

The PECC   is a program financed up to 50% by the Canton of Vaud (for the Vaud municipalities). The project stages are identical to those presented above, with a total project duration of 4 years. Alterna is currently supporting 15 Vaud municipalities in this process. For information, it is necessary to plan a budget over 4 years of approximately 10,000 to 12,500 CHF for the realization of the PECC, the additional 50% being provided by the Canton.

An additional subsidy is also available for the PECC implementation phase: 50% of the cost of support for the implementation of actions of the Municipal Energy and Climate Plan (PECC), up to a maximum of 6,000 CHF.
In total, this is a subsidy of 18,500 CHF that your municipality can receive for the implementation of your climate plan in the canton of Vaud.
