Greenhouse Gas Inventory Community Engagement Session

  1. December 6, 2022 to December 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Since May 2022, the Township of Mapleton and CIMA+ have been working together in developing the Township’s 2021 Greenhouse Gas Inventory, a detailed listing of all emissions sources within the defined Township’s boundary, in aims of gaining an understanding of which sectors and activities are contributing to the overall footprint of the Township.

The objectives of the GHG Inventory developed in compliance with the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Inventories (GPC) are to:

• Develop a comprehensive and robust GHG inventory to better understand the emissions contributions of different activities in the community,

• Establish a base year GHG emissions inventory, set GHG reduction targets and track performance,

• Ensure consistent and transparent measurement and reporting of GHG emissions.

To allow the transition towards a sustainable way of living and contribute to the development of an economy based on the fight against climate change, it is essential for communities to implement concrete measures to reduce their carbon footprint. Our next step is to facilitate Community Engagement sessions with all community members, to collect their ideas and comments, and to address any questions or concerns; working together to develop an Action Plan within the community.

 

There will be two community Engagement Sessions, one for Residential stakeholders and one for Agriculture/Commercial/Institutional/Industrial stakeholders. Dates and times as follows:

Residential meeting December 6th, from 6-8pm

Agriculture/Commercial/Institutional/Industrial meeting December 7th, from 6-8pm

Food and Drinks will be provided
