The City of Toronto is currently seeking input on actions under consideration for the TransformTO Net Zero Strategy, which is being developed in response to the climate emergency declaration made by Toronto City Council in October 2019. The declaration set a new community-wide target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, or sooner. The TransformTO Net Zero Strategy will be presented to Council in fall 2021.
The development of the draft net zero actions were informed by previous consultations between 2016 and 2020. The City is now asking for input to prioritize the short-term actions that will help to meet our 2030 emissions reduction target – a key milestone on the path to net zero.
There are several ways to provide feedback:
• Complete an online survey
• Host a virtual discussion in your community using the Discussion Guide and provide a summary of your group’s input
• Add or comment on ideas on the TransformTO Getting TO Net Zero Idea Board
More information and resources are available here.
The public comment period closes on July 26
