Why is the City developing a climate action strategy?

    Focusing on climate action planning dependencies include public transportation, waste management, vehicle usage, infrastructure—and just about every other activity within the urban area of Owen Sound. A strategic balance among reducing energy usage, encouraging technological innovation, and changing behaviors lead to a healthier and more sustainable future.

    Will the climate action strategy include actions to address mitigation and adaptation?

    Yes!  This project includes the development of a mitigation action plan and  a review of the current Corporate Climate Change Adaptation Plan.
