Green Your Home
To meet the City’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction targets, we need to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and buildings by about 40%, and reduce waste.
- By 2030, all new buildings will be built to produce near-zero GHG emissions.
- By 2050:
- 100% of existing buildings will have been retrofitted to improve energy performance by 40%.
- 95% of waste will be diverted from landfill.
Homes and buildings account for about half of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Toronto today, and waste accounts for more than 10%.
These programs and incentives will help you do your part. Let’s #TransformTO.
