January Newsletter 2021 | Jan 28, 2021
Hi <<First Name>>, we have new resources, blog posts, and funding opportunities for municipalities to achieve real savings and real change, in this edition of The Current Climate. We have several climate mitigation programs and resources to share with you that we are going to start sending focused, shorter, and more timely updates every month, rather than seasonally.
Millions of dollars in annual energy savings are going back to communities
We work with Alberta communities to reduce operating costs, improve community health, advance climate resiliency, and adopt and act on plans to respond to climate change.

Since 2009, the Action Centre has helped Alberta municipalities, school authorities, non-profits and community organizations achieve their cost and greenhouse gas reduction goals. 2020 was challenging on so many fronts but, through it all, the Action Centre’s programs and services continued to support Alberta communities with projects that saved money, lowered emissions, and supported local job creation.

See economic and environmental benefits our program participants have achieved in our Impact Report 2020.

Communities like Westlock are saving money with solar
Communities like the Town of Westlock are lowering energy costs, generating immediate and long-term savings, improving infrastructure, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“With the help of the Action Centre, we’re able to offset a significant portion of our current energy consumption without having to take dollars away from another area. Solar is an investment in the town’s future and from an environmental and financial perspective, it just makes sense.”Mayor Ralph Leriger, Town of Westlock

How to calculate greenhouse gas emissions

Quantifying greenhouse gas emissions is a necessary step to understanding how your municipal project is impacting the environment. Understanding the impact of human activity on greenhouse gas emissions is crucial to informing the world’s effort to reduce our impact on the Earth. Follow this simple approach for calculating emissions reductions to understand your carbon impact.

Then, j
oin the Action Centre and Evan Comeau from the City of Lethbridge on February 18. You'll learn more about greenhouse gas emissions inventories in the municipal context.
