Community buildings such as recreation centres, libraries, indoor ice rinks and swimming pools, are often one of the largest sources of municipal GHG emissions. To reach their climate goals, municipalities must significantly reduce and, eventually, eliminate these emissions. But where do you get started with such a big objective?

A strategic and cost-effective GHG reduction pathway for community buildings is key to ensuring that the right emissions reduction projects are implemented with the best possible financial and environmental outcomes. Our new resource, Planning an emissions reduction pathway for community buildings, provides guidance on how to create such a pathway.

In this webinar, GMF staff will walk you through the resource—clarifying the first steps in completing a GHG reduction pathway—provide examples of successful pathways in Canadian municipalities and be available to answer any questions.

Join us on November 30 at 1 p.m. ET to get started on making your pathway towards net-zero carbon communities.

This webinar will be delivered in French with English simultaneous interpretation. 

FCM’s Community Buildings Retrofit initiative is delivered through our Green Municipal Fund and funded by the Government of Canada. 

What you will learn:

  • The benefits of a GHG reduction pathway for community buildings
  • The process of starting a GHG reduction pathway
  • Examples of municipal GHG reduction pathways

Webinar benefits:

  • Acquire the knowledge necessary to contribute to the realization of near net zero and low-carbon community buildings
  • Determine what funding options are available through GMF’s Community Buildings Retrofit (CBR) and which may be right for your local buildings
  • Be motivated and inspired by successful examples of municipalities with completed community buildings retrofit upgrades
