The City of Toronto has updated the Toronto Green Standard (TGS) to include stepped performance targets to approach zero emissions for all new buildings by 2030. This update represents a critical step toward achieving City Council's low-carbon goals established in TransformTO, Toronto's Climate Action Strategy, with the overall City-wide goal of achieving an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (relative to 1990 levels). Additionally, the updated performance measures directly support the forthcoming changes to the Ontario Building Code and the Province of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan.
