Past National Measures Reports

green binder

Municipal governments across Canada are implementing innovative solutions to reduce GHG emissions and mitigate the effects of global climate change. These efforts are commendable, and offer lessons learned and best practices that should be recognized and shared in order to inspire communities considering their own climate actions.

By analyzing the impact of communities' efforts and reporting on their progress, the National Measures Reports demonstrate the cumulative impact of local government action and build support for further initiatives. The report is a one-of-a-kind resource that provides Canadian municipal governments with the information and motivation they need to achieve deep and lasting GHG reductions.
