Climate change remains a very important issue, requiring concerted action from all levels of government and individuals. Municipalities in Halton, including the City of Burlington, Towns of Halton Hills, Oakville, and Milton, and Halton Region have declared climate change emergencies and are working in various ways to reduce impacts from their municipal operations and impacts from their communities.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGe) are the greatest contributor to our changing climate. Buildings and transportation activities are the most significant sources of our GHGe. This is why the Government of Canada, governments around the world, and the United Nations are planning for Net Zero GHGe as a means to slow down the rate of climate change.
The Government of Canada defines Net Zero as: the state when any emissions released into the atmosphere are balanced by removal of emissions out of the atmosphere.
Halton Region is preparing a Community Climate Action Plan and is partnering with Halton Environmental Network (an environmental non-profit organization) to survey the Halton community’s willingness to participate in actions to reduce GHGe and to target a timeframe to achieve Net Zero community GHGe in Halton.
You may start the survey now by clicking on the Start button below.
Your participation in this survey is voluntary. The information collected will only be used to inform a community GHGe reduction target and to identify appropriate actions for its Community Climate Action Plan.
No Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will be collected unless it is voluntarily provided at the end of the survey for notification about planned community consultations on the Community Climate Action Plan for Halton in the near future.
If you have any questions about this survey, or require it in another format, please contact the Community Climate Action Plan team at ClimateAction@haltonenvironment.ca
