Transforming our cities and towns into energy efficient communities with net-zero emissions and climate resilient infrastructure and land-use planning.

Climate change brings a new twist to the quest for healthy Canadian towns and cities, with adaptation now sitting alongside a long-running drive to eliminate carbon pollution.
Achieving net-zero GHG emissions involves a complex interconnection of potential urban design and planning elements such as home retrofits, net-positive energy buildings, energy conservation, district energy systems, and clean transport accessibility. Infrastructure also needs to withstand climate change impacts, ranging from extreme weather events to sea level rise.
