Net-Zero Greater Sudbury

From our world-renowned regreening efforts to our lake water quality programs to our active and engaged environmental groups, a lot of work has gone into making Greater Sudbury cleaner, greener, healthier and more sustainable.

Greater Sudbury is acting on the climate emergency and we all have a role to play

As a community, we are taking action to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. That means reducing GHG emissions caused by human activity to as close to zero as possible, and removing remaining emissions from the atmosphere.

It’s an ambitious goal – but we're a community that loves a challenge!

We’ve got a long term plan - the Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) - to help get us there. And the City recently released its phase one action plan, committing to more than 40 municipal actions over the next five years. Learn more here.

We're all in this together

But working toward net zero isn't just about the City. Reaching our goal means we ALL have a role to play – government, businesses, schools, community groups, and residents of all ages.

And while 2050 may seem too far off to think about, the work has to start now. Every small action is part of a much larger solution.
