The City of Windsor has been recognized by the Carbon Disclosure Project as one of 123 A List cities and counties across the globe that are taking bold leadership on environmental action and transparency.

To score an A, among other actions, a local government must disclose publicly on local climate change initiatives through CDP-ICLEI Track and have a community-wide emissions inventory. It must have set a renewable energy target for the future and have published a climate action plan. It must also complete a climate risk and vulnerability assessment and have a climate adaptation plan to demonstrate how it will tackle climate hazards. Many A List cities and counties are also taking a variety of other leadership actions, such as political commitment from a city’s mayor to tackle climate change.

The City of Windsor is starting to address the challenges of a changing climate through the development and implementation of the Sewer and Coastal Flood Management Plan and inclusion of parks features to reduce the risk of extreme heat. The City is also working to reduce emissions through increasing opportunities for active transportation and investigating solutions for home energy retrofits. Local economic development projects, including the NextStar battery plant and Stellantis’ retooling for electric vehicles, ensure that Windsor is supporting the net-zero transition in communities across the Canada and internationally.

CDP is a global non-profit that runs the world’s environmental disclosure system for companies, cities, states and regions. Founded in 2000 and working with more than 680 investors with over $130 trillion in assets, CDP pioneered using capital markets and corporate procurement to motivate companies to disclose their environmental impacts, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests.
