Calling on passionate citizens to join the Sault Climate Hub in celebrating the completion and presentation of the much-anticipated city of Sault Ste. Marie greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory, at the Monday, February 24, 2020 city council meeting. City of Sault Ste. Marie staff have confirmed the inventory will be presented at the council meeting, and we want to make sure council’s efforts are applauded, and that council members feel supported in taking bold action to address the imminent, present, and pressing climate emergency.
According to Sault Climate Hub membership, “the GHG inventory is a necessary tool, which can be used by the city to direct efforts in reducing GHG emissions in an informed and effective manner. It can be used to guide the implementation of best practices, assess where infrastructure investment will be most effective, and in the assessment of whether or not to endorse future developments–ensuring they are in line with the community’s GHG-reduction trajectory.”
So please, come out, celebrate, and show support for the city’s current efforts, and for future bold action to tackle climate change. Let’s come together in support of shaping a brighter and prosperous future for our community, for future generations, and to create the buzz and energy we need to meaningfully get the ball rolling.
