Reducing your footprint
Canadian Environmental Policies and Legislation
Canada is part of many international agreements and partnerships that deal with addressing the issues related to climate change. This includes:
TREA’s Reduction of Fossil Fuels focuses on the sustainability of our resources. TREA has actively delivered campaigns on climate change including an air quality agenda involving 10 related agencies and visits to over 100 venues to discuss local issues with over 30,000 citizens. A second campaign, the federal One Tonne Challenge was a call to action to reduce emissions. TREA’s 14 measurable projects included residents, workplaces, service groups and individuals with 25,000 citizens participating overall. TREA has a strong interest in delivering local food workshops, conservation (ie. a clothesline campaign, numerous renewable workshops, and vehicle anti-idling strategies), the Green Directory and more recently homesteading.
