In association with the City's declaration of a Climate Emergency in August 2019, a revised Energy Transition Strategy was presented to and adopted by Council on April 19, 2021. At the same time Council adopted a new Climate Resilient Policy C627 and rescinded Policies C532 (Sustainable Building Policy) and C585 (Energy Transition Strategy Policy) .
C627 Climate Resilience Policy: The purpose of this policy is to provide clear and consistent governance and accountabilities for achieving a climate resilient community, and to demonstrate to Edmonton’s citizens, businesses, and community and industry partners the City of Edmonton's commitment to climate solution leadership in all aspects of city planning, development and business decisions.
Climate Resilient Building Administrative Procedures: Six draft Administrative Procedures have been developed to provide clear direction and process for policy implementation. They will be posted once approved.
