Summary

Carbon Talks engaged five key Canadian municipalities in its efforts to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including; Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. Recognizing that federal governments have not delivered the necessary decisive action to limit global GHG emissions, Carbon Talks aimed to create dialogue between representatives from business, civil society, and academia in order to develop regionally appropriate, practical solutions to create a carbon neutral economy. This project specifically focused on engaging neighbourhoods, regional politicians, developers and civic groups in order to gain sufficient buy-in concerning buildings and the built environment.
