About this event:

In 2017, Toronto City Council unanimously voted to pass TransformTO, the City’s climate action strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent of 1990 levels by 2050. To reach this target, Toronto needs to make transformative changes to the ways we travel, build, use energy, and manage waste— and the City needs your input on the next set of short-term climate actions from 2021-2023 that will support those transformations.

The TransformTO Implementation Plan will be presented to City Council in early 2020. The actions in the Implementation Plan aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and integrate climate resilience, while maximizing benefits to the community.

Join us to give input on what climate action priorities should be included in the TransformTO Implementation Plan to 2023 to support the City in reaching its 2050 target. To learn more about TransformTO, visit www.toronto.ca/transformto.
