TOPIC: The City of Calgary's Corporate & Community
Climate Change Strategy: 2003 - 2006

The City of Calgary believes that to demonstrate environmental stewardship it must be able to demonstrate community and corporate leadership by setting an example. With that philosophy in mind, it has undertaken over the past seven years a large-scale in-house energy conservation and climate change program. The initiative has resulted in significant energy and cost savings to its buildings and other operations. The major spin-off benefit of this energy management program for The City has been a corresponding reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from its operations

The City has approved a voluntary energy and greenhouse gas reduction goal of 6% below the 1990 emissions generated by its corporate operations by the year 2012. Four of the initiatives The City has implemented within its operations accounts for approximately 80 kilotonnes of the emission reduction it wants to achieve. As Calgary grows and The City's operations grow to accommodate population growth, the gap in The City's reduction target will also grow, so it will be a challenge to introduce further energy saving initiatives that will close that gap by 2012.

The City's community awareness and educational outreach component of its climate change strategy builds on the extensive work already being done on this subject by the business community, the Alberta Government and Climate Change Central. The City's community program is planning to engage all Calgarians in a community-wide energy conservation and greenhouse gas-reducing program. Calgarians' ability to rise to a challenge will be the key factor in determining whether or not the community's voluntary reduction target of 6% below 1990 emission levels can be achieved

To ensure adequate seating, please pre-register with the Calgary APEGGA office at 262-7714 before Friday, November 15, 2002. The Calgary Branch now accepts Visa, MasterCard, or American Express for tickets sold prior to the day of the event.
