Climate Emergency Action Plan

The City of London is continuing to develop our community’s Climate Emergency Action Plan. As a result of COVID-19, the plan was disrupted, but the City is now creating more time and opportunities for Londoners to provide input.

The Climate Emergency Action Plan is an urgent response to our changing climate. The goals are to reduce London’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30% by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050.

A recent report to the Municipal Council’s Strategic Priorities and Policy Committee provided an update of the development of the Climate Emergency Action Plan, actions that have been under way, the revised schedule, initial ideas for engaging the community and London's businesses, and plans to carry on the work.

Developing the Climate Emergency Action Plan will be an ongoing process. Additional information and opportunities to provide input will continue to be posted later this fall and winter. You can subscribe for email updates on this page where more information will be shared.

I would love to see more community gardens, which support local food growing and food sharing programs. I would also like to see these gardens partner with food banks or other services so excess food can be given to those who need it. Green bins would help divert household waste.

More bike infrastructure, more frequent busses, ban all single use plastic, better recycling for plastics, mandate recycling programs in all businesses, start a green bin program (like Toronto) for compost to be picked up curbside with other waste. More food forests and community gardens

Incorporate reusable items. Ban plastic/single use items like bags, straws, to go cups. More community gardens. More trees for a place called Forrest city.

Look at Carmel CA building rules for preserving trees on all renovation and new build lots within town limits. Dream big and picture this on a city wide scale.Stop allowing developers to cut down trees and require a strategic preservation plan for trees and native plants to prevent soil erosion and to provide greenhouse gas absorption.Provide grants for rooftop trees and gardens; solar and wind augmentation on residential and municipal buildings
