Municipalities can significantly reduce their GHGs by improving the energy efficiency of community-owned recreation facilities, like indoor swimming pools. Pulling from the net-zero feasibility studies of four community centres with indoor pools in Ontario, this guide summarizes the typical measures taken and insights gained so that more Canadian communities can learn from the experiences of others and move forward with their own plans for net-zero swimming pools.

The guide provides information on:

  • successful and replicable measures that reduce GHG emissions of indoor swimming pools
  • key statistics from feasibility studies that will help you make the case for a net-zero plan
  • the importance of monitoring and management
  • additional resources and support for your net-zero building plan
