More on Peel's Climate Change Strategic Plan

Climate change is any change in climate over time, whether due to natural changes or as a result of human activity, which affect the natural ecosystem. Together with our partners — and through proactive public policy in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga — we're preparing a strategy to combat the long-term shift in Peel's climate conditions.

Mitigation - steps to help reverse the effects of climate change - and adaptation - steps to deal with what's already happening - will:

  • Help set attainable goals.
  • Determine benchmarks.
  • Seek to develop targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Our local focus

Our federal and provincial governments are taking steps to reverse the negative effects of climate change on a national and provincial scale.

Locally, the Region and its partners will influence policy by:

  • Preparing a strategy with global focus but applicable to Peel.
  • Evaluating existing climate change planning processes.
  • Developing a set of measurable reduction targets.
  • Outlining how we'll achieve reduction targets.
  • Establishing a monitoring framework to start our recommended climate change initiatives.
