We will meet our 2014 and 2020 Greenhouse Gas Emission targets through a variety of measures, including:
- Better transit: Our 10-year, $29 billion transportation and transit build-out will relieve gridlock, so cars aren’t stuck in traffic, unnecessarily emitting greenhouse gases (GHGs).
- Better buildings: Our conservation-first agenda will provide tools for homeowners and building owners to reduce their energy needs, including natural gas. We will also make sure new buildings are as energy efficient as possible.
- Closing the gap: In 2015, we will review progress toward meeting our 2020 target and develop a clear plan to get there.
- Cleaner fuels: We are reducing greenhouse gas emissions from trucks, trains and other diesel-powered vehicles with new rules for clean bio-diesel that are the toughest in Canada.
- More coal reductions: New alternative fuels rules will help Ontario’s big, energy-intensive industries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. These industries are the largest burners of GHG-heavy coal in Ontario, now that theProvince has shut down the last coal-fired power plant. Closing the power plants was the largest climate change action ever taken in North America.
