City of Toronto | TransformTO: Getting to Net Zero
In response to City Council’s climate emergency declaration in 2019, the City is updating the TransformTO climate action strategy to meet an accelerated greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of net zero by 2050 or sooner. This includes reaching a short-term target to reduce emissions by 65 per cent from 1990 levels by 2030; a key milestone on the path to net zero.
With previous input from Torontonians, the City has identified some key climate actions to reduce emissions from the main sources of greenhouse gases in Toronto, including buildings, transportation, energy and waste.
The City invites your input on the net zero climate actions under consideration.
Your feedback will help us prioritize short-term climate actions to meet our 2030 emissions reduction target. We want to make sure our climate actions leave no one behind, so while you’re considering which climate actions should be implemented first, also consider what these actions might look like in your community as we travel the path to net zero together.
Learn more about net zero by viewing this short video, and the TransformTO Net Zero Strategy and Climate Actions Backgrounder and get involved today:
- Complete the online survey.
- Host a virtual climate conversation in your community using the Discussion Guide (available in multiple languages below) and submit a summary of your input .
- View the ideas of other Torontonians and share your own on our Idea Board.
Please provide your input by August 4. All feedback collected will help inform the TransformTO Net Zero Strategy, which City staff will present to Toronto City Council in fall 2021.
