Council has directed Administration to develop a Corporate Greenhouse Gas Management Implementation Plan, as outlined in the Greenhouse Gas Management Plan for Civic Operations 2019-2030, based on an carbon reduction scenario accelerating the plan outlined for a 50% reduction (below 2005) levels by 2030.
The plan and related summary document outline a proposed method to achieve a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from City operations by 2030 (from 2005 levels).
