Greenhouse gas emissions in Ottawa are projected to remain relatively unchanged between now and 2050 in the Business as Planned scenario. This does not get us to where we need to be if we are to achieve any of the greenhouse gas emission targets.

Energy Evolution, was unanimously approved by Ottawa City Council in October 2020 to achieve the target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100% by 2050.

Analysis shows that the targets are achievable with existing technologies, but it means bold action is required to transform Ottawa’s buildings, energy, transportation, waste and land use. Realizing our goals will require concerted efforts and collaboration across all sectors of the community.
