First TransformTO Report
The first of two TransformTO Reports will be presented to the Parks and Environment Subcommittee on Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation on November 14. Meeting agenda and details are available online. Watch the Parks and Environment Committee live at https://www.youtube.com/TorontoCityCouncilLive
The report will identify short-term actions to set Toronto on the path to meet our targets including our interim goal of a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 against 1990 levels. A second report in 2017 will quantify longer-term transformational strategies needed to reduce emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.
Technical scenario modelling and community feedback helped identify a list of the short-term actions that will be included in the first report. More long-term actions will be recommended in the second report in 2017. Toronto's greenhouse gas reduction targets support provincial and federal government's long-term goals for carbon reduction.
