The City of Toronto developed it's climate action strategy TransformTO to reduce local greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve our health, grow our economy, and improve social equity. With existing buildings accounting for 52% of GHG emissions in Toronto, our goal is to retrofit all of them by 2050 to achieve
net zero emissions. The City recognized multi-unit residential buildings as an early priority through the Tower Renewal Program as retrofitting these buildings
helps preserve this aging housing stock while reducing GHG emissions. Learn about the upcoming TransformTO Net Zero strategy and what support programs are
offered for residential buildings. Find out how participating in our Tower Renewal and Navigation Services programs can help you achieve the best outcome
for your buildings and residents.
