Toronto council unanimously supports climate change action plan.




 

The Toronto City Council has unanimously supported a climate change action plan named TransformTO, which aims to reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent by the year 2050.

It’s estimated 67 per cent of the emissions reductions will save money over their lifetime and 33 per cent will cost money, given current technologies and other financial.

A motion, brought forward by Councilor Mary-Margaret McMahon, will have TransformTO business cases prioritized on a basis of greenhouse gas reductions per dollar spent through the 2018 budget process.
