About the Climate Change Action Plan

Climate change is real and it's happening. Within the last five years, Mississauga has experienced more intense heat waves, rain, flooding and winter storms. It's predicted that these trends will continue in the future. The City of Mississauga is committed to decreasing our carbon footprint and preparing the community for the effects of a changing climate. The Climate Change Action Plan is our ambitious, yet practical, plan to do that.

Vision

Mississauga will be a low carbon and resilient community

Two Goals

Mitigation: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050, with the long term goal of becoming a net zero community

Adaptation: Increase resilience and the capacity of the city to withstand and respond to future climate events by taking action on the highest climate-related risks

    In an effort to help reduce C02 emissions and guard our dirt against erosion, will the City of Mississauga prioritize the older growth trees and green space in our city? The current focus on shopping plaza and large home development at the expense of maintaining greenspace is hurting our capacity to deal with future changes. Does Mississauga really need another box store?There is one on every corner- try something innovative, different and that has a little soul!

    Thanks for your question! The City works towards conserving our natural green spaces and also creating more – the One Million Trees program is a great example. Recently, we launched a new campaign with the library called #SaugaClimateReads, this month’s pick is a Dr.Seuss classic, The Lorax, which is all about speaking for the trees. We encourage you to take out a copy and share with your neighbours!

    How many diesel powered vehicles does the City Mississauga operate. Does the City ask the operators of these vehicle to turn off the engine when the vehicle is in park. In other words lead by example, and reduce C02 emissions one vehicle at a time !

    Thank you for your question! The City of Mississauga operates a variety of different vehicles and equipment, where staff is accountable to the Idling Control By-law 194-09. Yes, you are certainly right that the City should lead by example. You may be interested to note that the City recently purchased 10 hybrid buses and will only be purchasing hybrid or zero carbon buses from this point on. This will be a meaningful contribution to reducing CO2 emissions and forwarding the new Climate Change Action Plan.
