The Green Will Initiative, championed by Mayor John Tory seeks to accelerate greenhouse gas emissions reductions by improving the energy efficiency of public and private-owned buildings across Toronto.

A program of the City’s Better Buildings Partnership, the Green Will Initiative will see the City and property owners work together to make major strides towards addressing the climate emergency and achieve Toronto’s net-zero emissions target.

Buildings account for more than half of the greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto today.

The Green Will Initiative is a voluntary program targeting building portfolios initially, that will identify each portfolio’s unique pathway to net-zero emissions and provide support to building owners/operators by creating a plan to accelerate emissions reductions and achieve targets.

Some of Toronto’s largest property managers and owners, whose portfolios include over 4,500 buildings spanning 300+ million square feet of real estate in Toronto, have signed on to form the first cohort. The Green Will Initiative will be open for additional enrollment in the near future.
