TransformTO is Toronto’s ambitious climate action strategy. It includes short and long-term actions to meet the City’s greenhouse gas [GHG] reduction targets of 65 per cent by 2030, and net zero by 2050, or sooner. Meeting these targets will require big changes in how we live, work, build, travel, and more.
In Toronto, our homes and buildings, vehicles, and waste are the largest sources of GHG emissions. Reducing these emissions will require participation from all of Toronto’s communities and residents.

As a part of TransformTO implementation, the City of Toronto’s Environment and Energy Division convened a network of multi-disciplinary stakeholders to help support city-wide community engagement in climate action.
On January 10, 2019, over 80 community partners were brought together in a collaborative workshop. Participants recommended a list of key actions, and projects ideas that can help engage Torontonians in climate action. More information about the recommendations and next steps is summarized in the Climate Change Engagement Workshop Report.
Efforts are underway to support projects and partnerships that formed as a result of the workshop. Please contact Tamara Grossutti or Megan MacLean for potential partnership opportunities and to find out more.
To help support ongoing community leadership and engagement in climate action, the City of Toronto is able to offer the following resources:
In 2018, the City commissioned a survey to capture residents’ perceptions on climate change and to better understand their willingness to take action in the community. The results from this survey will assist the City in establishing climate action priorities, goals, and metrics that will measure success. Read the survey report.
