Climate Change Action Plan

The Climate Change Action Plan is a ten-year plan that will help Mississauga become a low-carbon and resilient community.

Overview

The City’s Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) aims to decrease Mississauga’s greenhouse gas emissions and prepare the community for climate change impacts, such as increased flooding, ice storms and heatwaves.

The CCAP has two main goals:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels.
  • Increase the City’s resilience and capacity to withstand and respond to current and future climate events.

About the action pathways

The CCAP includes a total of 89 actions, which are grouped into five action pathways:

  • Buildings and Clean Energy
  • Resilient and Green Infrastructure
  • Accelerating Discovery and Innovation
  • Low Emissions Mobility
  • Engagement and Partnerships
