Check out our Knowledge Hub for useful net zero resources, including valuable assets from industry experts and leading building portfolios in Toronto
The Green Will Initiative invites building portfolio owners across Toronto to partner with the City of Toronto to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from buildings, which are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto.
To date, the Green Will Initiative has brought together 30 of Toronto's major building portfolio owners who are committed to leading the way and taking bold action to reduce their buildings' emissions to net zero.
Through The Green Will Initiative, building owners will be supported in their efforts to reduce their building’s greenhouse gas emissions to net zero. Recognizing that the path to net zero will be unique for each portfolio and building, City staff will support building owners in achieving targets and creating a plan to accelerate emissions reductions.
