What is Transform TO?

TransformTO: Climate action for a healthy, equitable, prosperous Toronto is a collaborative project to engage the community in reducing Toronto's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% by 2050.

With the goal of reducing the most negative impacts of climate change, achieving this target will require transformational changes in how we live, work, commute, build, and more.

With the support of community consultations and technical scenario modelling, TransformTO will identify strategies to reduce Toronto's GHG emissions, and develop a framework for decision-making that will lead to a low-carbon city that is healthier, more prosperous and more equitable.  

TransformTO will deliver two reports:  

  1. Report 1/December 2016: Short-term strategies to keep Toronto on track to meet its 2020 target of a 30% reduction in GHG emissions.  
  2. Report 2/May 2017: A long-term approach to reducing emissions by 80% by 2050 while also improving health, prosperity and equity.  

Led by Toronto's Environment and Energy Division and The Atmospheric Fund, TransformTO has engaged more than 2,000 Torontonians to date through public consultation events, community conversations, an online survey and more.
