Air and Energy

Clean air is essential to the health and well-being of all living creatures and their surrounding environment.

Air quality, however, is directly affected by natural and human activities, including vehicle exhaust, heating of homes and buildings, burning of wood, construction dust, industrial processes and energy generation.

The Region, Cities and local utilities are currently working together to prioritize energy projects in Waterloo Region that will help us to be more efficient and to keep more of our energy dollars local. Check out the Community Energy Investment Strategy page for more information.

The Region has also completed an Energy Management Strategy, a Fleet Greening Strategy, Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan.

We are committed to doing our part to create a healthy, sustainable environment. This will help keep the air clean by managing energy resources while reducing greenhouse gases and other air emissions that result from Regional activities.
