Media Advisory - Zerofootprint Toronto goes live
  
Mayor David Miller and Dr. Ron Dembo, Founder and CEO of Zerofootprint will join together with community partners and sponsors to launch Zerofootprint Toronto on Tuesday, February 26. Zerofootprint Toronto is an innovative and interactive website that allows residents to measure and understand the impact of their lifestyles on the environment, and compare their behaviour with other individuals or groups.

At the launch, Toronto and area residents will be encouraged to do their part to combat climate change by reducing their environmental impact and adopting more environmentally friendly lifestyles. By encouraging changes in consumption and lifestyle, residents can help Toronto become one of the greenest cities on the planet, and a model for other cities around the world.

Date: Tuesday, February 26
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: SAS (Canada), 280 King St. E., 5th floor

The partnership with Zerofootprint and the City of Toronto was first announced by Mayor Miller at the C40 Large Cities climate change summit in New York City in May 2007.
