Toronto Green Standard

The Toronto Green Standard is an important performance management tool for new development aimed at lessening future infrastructure demands and environmental impacts. Toronto Green Standard integrates environmental performance requirements established through City policy, guidelines and regulations, and implements these through established land use planning processes. It represents strong policy in that it implements the broader policy objectives of the Official Plan and corporate climate change policy using authorities under the City of Toronto Act and the Planning Act.
