Waterloo Region's Climate Action Strategy

A circle containing the words "ClimateActionWR: Transforming Waterloo Region, #WR80by50" is surrounding by four local scenes: a transit bus in a core area, a red barn on a farm, a historic building, and a pond with children playing at the edge.

Climate change is affecting our community, so our plans are changing, too. Share your vision of the future for Waterloo Region.

ClimateActionWR is working with all eight municipalities within Waterloo Region (the cities, the townships and the Region) to create a 30-year Climate Action Strategy to achieve an 80 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2050.

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are gases (such as carbon dioxide and methane) that trap heat from the sun inside the earth's atmosphere. As more GHGs are released into our atmosphere (largely through the burning of fossil fuels), more heat is trapped by them. This raises the temperature of the air, ocean and water, changing the conditions in which we live, and causing more extreme weather events both globally and locally.

To reduce our GHGs locally, it’s critical that this strategy represents the insights and ideas of our community members. Share your voice! Complete the survey to tell us what you think.

ClimateActionWR is a collaborative partnership that includes: Reep Green Solutions, Sustainable Waterloo Region, City of Cambridge, City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo and the Region of Waterloo.
