Natural gas is cleaner than coal but still a significant source of carbon emissions. When there are increases in demand for electricity, that demand is almost always met by natural gas. Electricity conservation is key to reducing carbon emissions.

Proposed watering down of Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking regs. Owners of buildings under 100,000 sq.ft wouldn’t have to report energy, water use or GHG data. These regs help owners improve energy efficiency; this proposal is a step backwards:

Most transport emissions in Toronto are from longer trips originating in outer suburbs and municipalities. We need interventions designed for these areas. Thanks to recent TAF-funded research, we can now pinpoint these areas with accuracy and detail.
