Committee Room "3"
City Hall, 2nd floor

New report details how - and how much

The City of Toronto's work since 1990 to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
from its own operations have made it a national leader in the fight against
climate change.

The City's efforts have paid off so handsomely that Toronto as a whole is on
its way to compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, the international agreement to
slow the emissions of GHGs that are destabilizing the planet's climate patterns.

The extent of the City's success will be detailed for the first time in a
report to be released at Thursday's news conference.

On hand to release the report and respond to questions will be Councillor David
Soknacki, Chair of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund (TAF); John Warren, Director of
Environmental Service, Works and Emergency Services, and Philip Jessup,
Executive Director of TAF.
