Did you know?

Across the region we use enough energy and fossil fuels to emit more than 1.7 million tonnes of GHG emissions each year. 

Our transportation, building lighting and heating, and waste generation choices have a big impact on the environment and on our wallets. While we know it will take a huge shift in behaviour, technology and policy to achieve substantial GHG reductions, there are many actions we can do at home to improve efficiency to reduce our impact and to prepare for future climates.
