Increased renewable energy, reduce GHG production and operational cost savings. Reducing GHGs is part of Whitehorse’s commitment to global sustainability. Decreasing non-renewable energy use and increasing renewable energy production lowers community risks associated with fossil fuel dependence and climate change, and lowers operating costs.
We are working towards
- Producing renewable energy by the City of Whitehorse
- Reducing GHG emissions by the City of Whitehorse
- Fewer per capita and total GHG emissions in Whitehorse
The City will improve its corporate emissions through several new buildings and building envelope upgrades over the next few years. The City has made efforts to reduce community emissions through transit investments, stricter efficiency requirements for buildings, encouraging active transportation, and launching a rideshare app.
