Progress Achieved With Building Retrofits

July 14th, 2021 Toronto Council adopted a new Green Standard to accelerate energy-efficient building retrofits – another initiative that MobilizeTO had lobbied for through many letters and phone calls to Councillors. The new policies will help reduce emissions from housing as all new construction must meet net zero standards, while retrofitting existing City building stock. In future, all new structures will also be required to have electric vehicle charging and active transportation infrastructure.
