Halton Region to partner with Halton Environmental Network on Climate Change

By: Laura Steiner

The Region of Halton is looking at partnering with the Halton Environmental Network on climate change.  Halton Regional Council has directed staff to prepare a memorandum of understanding (MOU) defining climate  change mitigation, and adaptation activities the group would undertake to support the Halton Region.

“Through this MOU with the Halton Environmental Network, we can enhance our ability to address climate change across Halton and develop a collaborative approach to support the sustainability of the region for generations to come,” Regional Chair Gary Carr said.

The partnership will cover four different topics:

  • prepare a community Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory;
  • work with partners to form a Community Climate Action Plan;
  • develop a Community Engagement and Outreach Plan in collaboration with the Halton Climate Collective; and
  • explore positioning the Halton Climate Collective to coordinate climate action in the region.

The Halton Environmental Network was established in 2004, and operates a  not-for-profit organization.  For more information visit their website.
