October 6, 2021 is Energy Efficiency Day.
The City of Calgary recognizes the implications of climate change, and is working toward
- reducing greenhouse gas emissions to help limit global climate change
- adapting to a changing climate by taking actions to reduce the impact of extreme weather events and climatic changes.
On June 25, 2018, Calgary City Council unanimously approved the Climate Resilience Strategy. Strategy and Action Plans are to be updated every five years. The updated strategy and plans will be presented to City Council in 2022.
Climate change is a change in climate patterns caused by an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Climate Change negatively impacts Calgarians as well as all Albertans in various ways, for instance,
- increase of average annual temperatures,
- more severe and frequent flooding, droughts and wildfires,
- damage on water resources and city infrastructure,
- threat to our health, and more!
