Our climate change program looks at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing the risks and maximizing the benefits from anticipated climate change.
Niagara Region has committed to five milestones to guide how we reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Create a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and forecast
Set an emissions reductions target
Develop an action plan
Carry out the action plan
Monitor progress and report results
These milestones are part of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Partners for Climate Protection Program.
