Toronto releases its first TransformTO Implementation Update showing local greenhouse gas emissions reductions of 44%.

TransformTO is Toronto’s new and ambitious climate action strategy. Unanimously approved by City Council in July 2017, TransformTO lays out a set of long-term, low-carbon goals and strategies to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, and improve our health, grow our economy, and improve social equity.

Toronto’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets, based on 1990 levels:

  • 30 per cent by 2020
  • 65 per cent by 2030
  • 80 per cent by 2050

Achieving these targets will require transformational changes in how we live, work, build and commute.
