The 2019 National Measures Report showcases how members of the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program are committed to climate action at the local level, across the country.
The PCP program is a partnership between ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Over 400 PCP member municipalities across Canada have developed 420 projects to reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions, both in municipal operations and in the way energy is used in homes, businesses and transportation.
Some of the top reported actions include:
- Retrofit programs for residential and/or commercial buildings (41 per cent)
- Installation of electric vehicle charging stations for public use (38 per cent)
- Enhancement of walking and cycling infrastructure including sidewalks, multi-purpose trails, bike lanes, paved road shoulders, etc. (31 per cent)
The report features case studies and highlights of both corporate initiatives, which target emissions from municipal operations and services, and community-wide initiatives, which target emissions from the community at large.
