Toronto City Council's emissions reduction targets are documented in the TransformTO plan (pdf). These targets are based on Toronto's 1990 emissions: 30% by 2020; 65% by 2030; Net zero by 2050, or sooner. In the Paris Agreement, Canada pledged to aim to keep global temperature increases well below 2 degrees C and to aim to keep them below 1.5 degrees C.

According to the IPCC for a likely chance of remaining around 1.5oC the global carbon budget is 420 GtCO2e,

Toronto's share of the global population is 0.03% so the population-share of the global carbon budget is approximately 160 MtCO2e and will be exceeded by 2033.

Toronto's share of global emissons is 0.05% so the emissions-share of the global carbon budget is 260 MtCO2e and will be exceeded by 2042.

Latest Campaign - Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty

Upcoming Event

June 14 - 7 pm - Campaign for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty


Join the movement for a fossil fuel free future! Learn about the global campaign for a Fossil Fuel Non Proliferation Treaty and about our campaign for Toronto to endorse the Treaty.We will need to build a huge movement in order to move City Hall forward on climate action and the phasing out of all dependence on fossil fuels. So join us!

THE FOSSIL FUEL NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY (FFNPT) is a global initiative to halt the expansion and production of fossil fuels and to fast-track progress towards safer, more sustainable solutions.

Modeled after the 1968 treaty on the Non-proliferation of Nuclear Weapons – it is constructed around the same three pillars: non-proliferation (an agreement not to exploit new reserves), disarmament (the managed decline of fossil fuels and their infrastructure) and peaceful transition (a just and peaceful transition to renewables and the financing of low carbon energy alternatives to developing countries through a global transition fund).

Speakers to include  
Tzeporah Berman, Chair, and Seble Samuel, Cities organizer from the international Campaign for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Catherine Abreu of Climate Action Network Canada,
J ulia Levin, Environmental Defence. and Chloe Tse  of Fridays4FutureTO,

Organized by MobilizeTO, ClimateFast and other groups in the Toronto climate action community.
