Low-Carbon Transition Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link



The Low-Carbon Transition Strategy will establish the actions necessary to achieve the net-zero carbon target set out in the Climate Change Emergency Declaration by the proposed date of 2030. The plan will address de-carbonizing every aspect of Town-wide green house gas (GHG) emissions, including homes, transportation, industry, agriculture and waste.

In order to achieve the rapid transition to a low-carbon community, the Town will need a Low-Carbon Transition Strategy that lays out a clear implementation plan and is developed collaboratively with representation from across the Halton Hills community.

How the Low Carbon Transition Strategy will be developed:

GHG Inventory and Energy Mapping

Energy use and emissions data is currently being gathered from across the Town in order to develop a detailed baseline energy and emissions map of the community.

Business-as-Planned (BAP) Projections

Energy and emissions will be projected for the Town through 2030 in a business-as-planned scenario.

Scenario Development

A long list of low-carbon actions will be considered for modeling and inclusion in the strategy. Public consultation will assist in identifying priority actions.

Modeling the Future

After technical review and public engagement, a refined list of low-carbon actions will be developed for future scenario modelling.

Developing the Strategy

A final scenario and its associated actions will be developed into a draft strategy. Public engagement on the draft strategy will occur.

Process and Strategy Governance

A detailed implementation strategy will be developed which will outline a governance framework for the strategy.

The Town needs your input to help shape the Halton Hills Low-Carbon Transition Strategy.

What excites you about Halton Hills Low-Carbon Transition Strategy?

Over the next year, the Town will be initiating a collaborative planning effort to help develop a community-led Low-Carbon Transition Strategy. Community stakeholders are needed to share their experiences and contribute their thoughts to help shape Halton Hills’ energy future.
