The City of Burlington declared a Climate Emergency early in 2019 and directed staff to complete a Climate Action Plan. Following a community engagement process and the modelling of energy and community data, a draft Climate Action Plan was presented by staff at the Dec. 2nd Committee of the Whole meeting. The draft plan was made available during December and January for public review and feedback. The final plan is being presented to the Environment, Infrastructure & Community Services Committee on March 9th - read the report and the Action Plan. The plan includes seven key program areas to help the community transition away from the use of fossil fuels, particularly for buildings and transportation including:

  • Low carbon building guidelines (for new buildings)
  • Deep home energy retrofit program (for existing buildings)
  • Renewable energy cooperative
  • Integrated mobility
  • Electric mobility and equipment
  • Waste
  • Industrial processes
