Through the Better Buildings Partnership (BBP), the City delivers a variety of programs that provide funding, expertise and support to help building owners improve energy efficiency and accelerate emissions reductions in their residential, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings across Toronto.

Buildings are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto today, generated mainly from burning fossil fuels for heating, cooling and hot water. The City’s target is to reduce emissions from all sectors to net zero by 2040.
