In 2007, the City of Toronto adopted the target of reducing our greenhouse gas by 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. So far, we have reduced our emissions by 24%, but it is projected that Toronto will not meet our goal without significant further action.
There is an 8.7 million tonne gap between our projected GHG emissions in 2050 and our low-carbon target. Over the next 34 years, transformative changes to the City’s core urban systems – transportation, building design & operation, energy systems and waste management – will be necessary.
