Cities Taking Action on Climate Change
Climate change is already being felt in communities across the country. Average temperatures are rising, snow and ice cover are declining, and there is a growing incidence of natural disasters, such as storms, wildfires and floods. If left unchecked, the impacts of further warming on human and environmental systems will be profound. Fortunately, there is a growing movement of local and regional governments that is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and acting on climate change. ICLEI has over 20 years experience supporting local governments in their efforts to manage energy consumption, curb waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Is your municipality looking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? The Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program is a network of Canadian municipalities that are working together to reduce greenhouse gases and take action on climate change. Members have access to the latest tools, training and technical guidance.PCP
Developing a local GHG inventory is a complex process that involves tracking energy and emissions data across a variety of corporate and community activities. ICLEI has been working for more than a decade to address these complex issues by providing local governments with a set of standards and guidelines for developing both corporate (municipal) and community GHG inventories.Protocols
