Regional Council Approves Energy and Environment Sustainability Strategy
Regional Council adopted the Energy and Environment Sustainability Strategy (EESS), for energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction. The EESS will replace the Energy Management Plan adopted by Regional Council in 2007.
The Energy and Environment Sustainability Strategy provides an enabling framework that will guide the Region of Peel towards achieving the Term of Council Priority to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050. The strategy identifies three inter-related goals and the required actions that will result in plans, projects and initiatives to reduce corporate greenhouse gas emissions, ensure sustainable energy procurement and maintain regulatory compliance.
The EESS will allow the Region of Peel to continue its leadership role in energy and environment management and continue on a path towards achieving overall energy sustainability.
