Towards A Low Carbon Future at UTM
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. We are committed to doing our part and taking action.
The Low-Carbon Action Plan (2019-2024) is the guiding framework for all three campuses to achieve a low carbon future. This follows the University of Toronto’s decision to join the University Climate Change Coalition, a network of leading universities committed to accelerating climate action. Our targets are:
- 37% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, below a 1990 baseline level *UTM does not have data from 1990, thus 2005 is the baseline level.
- Net zero by 2050

The City of Mississauga’s Climate Change Action Plan outlines the path to both mitigate and adapt to climate change. The city’s targets are a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and 80% reduction by 2050, below 1990 levels.
