Why Sustainability Matters

The consequences of climate change are irreversible, devastating and costly. Despite our best intentions, Canada ranks among the highest per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters in the world. By taking action today, we can:

  • Help curb the impact of climate change on our lives and livelihoods
  • Build more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous communities
  • Protect and conserve our valuable resources for future generations

The Vital Role of Cities in a Low Carbon World

If cities are going to thrive sustainably in the decades ahead, we have to rethink how we design them, how we build them, and how we live in them.

The Journey to Net Zero Must Be Global

Our current commitment is to reach Net Zero by 2050. But using existing technologies and know how will get us only two-thirds of the way to that goal.
