Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP)
The Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) is the long-term plan to reduce carbon emissions and pollution in Greater Sudbury. It responds to City Council’s Climate Emergency declaration in May 2019, which included a commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. That means reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) caused by human activity to as close to zero as possible, and removing remaining emissions from the atmosphere.
Achieving a net-zero Greater Sudbury by 2050 will have positive social, economic and environmental impacts on our community, but getting there will rely on the combined efforts of the entire community – government, businesses, not-for-profits and residents.
CEEP is managed through the City’s Environmental Planning Initiatives Department, in partnership with Sustainability Solutions Group as the project consultant. The project is funded by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Province of Ontario.
