The Town’s Net-Zero Pathway

The Town of Halton Hills and the Multi-Stakeholder Governance Committee have been hard at work developing an evidence-based and community-informed Low-Carbon Transition Strategy for the town to reach net-zero emissions by 2030. Modelling an aggressive set of actions across all sectors shows the Town can reduce 75% of its current emissions by 2030, despite significant population growth projected over the next decade (45%).

For now, the Strategy calls for remaining emissions to be addressed via the purchase of offsets. Appropriate local carbon reduction solutions can be incorporated into the Strategy in future iterations. The following survey helps to design climate initiatives tailored to resident needs

The Low-Carbon Transition Strategy received council approval on November 15, 2021 - view report no. ADMIN-2021-0046.
A recording of the November 15 meeting can also be found on the municipal calendar, the Low-Carbon Transition Strategy presentation can be found 1:17:26 into the meeting. View the November 15 council meeting recording.

Stay tuned for the final draft of the Low-Carbon Transition Strategy (LCTS), anticipated in the coming weeks. Residents will be able to find the strategy here on the LCTS project page as well as haltonhills.ca/ClimateChange. In the meantime, residents are invited to view the October 2021 Low-Carbon Transition Strategy Draft.

    Why are carbon offsets the main feature of the net zero emissions strategy? It has been well documented that carbon offsets are not the way to go. We need more robust and concrete solutions!

    sonia asked 6 months ago

    Hi, carbon offsets are not the main feature of the net zero emissions strategy. While we anticipate in the short term some offsets may be required where sources of emissions can not be eliminated, our objective is to minimize the use of offsets as much as possible. Our focus with this plan is indeed developing robust and concrete solutions to reducing actual GHG emissions in Halton Hills.
