Green 13 has partnered with Project Neutral to help older neighbourhoods find a pathway to a carbon free future. Together we are working to help people in the Junction, and throughout Ward 13, measure their carbon emissions and identify concrete steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
While there are many actions individuals can take on their own, we also recognize that larger change requires a more organized effort. Together we are engaging with educators and leaders in the renewable and energy efficiency sectors to find solutions that go beyond the individual level.
For an infograpic on what our carbon footprint looks like in the Junction and Ward 13 go to http://tinyurl.com/pz94rto. The data comes from the 2012 carbon footprint survey.
There are incentives out there to help residents lower their carbon footprint. Go to www.gettingto80.ca for an evolving list.
