What can cities do to take action on climate change?
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Canada have produced a Quick Action Guide for Municipal Action on Climate Protection. The Guide outlines 20 steps communities can take to curb greenhouse gas emissions now, while also saving money, promoting energy efficiency, creating more jobs by investing in alternative energies and enhancing corporate image and community relations.
The guide presents a list of top ten corporate and community activities implemented by municipalities to address climate change.
Additional tools and resources are available through the Partners for Climate Protection website.
