Environmental Sustainability Strategy

The Region of Waterloo's Environmental Sustainability focus is primarily on ensuring a healthy natural environment – clean air, water and land as well as the protection of green spaces and sensitive environmental features.

The Environmental Sustainability Strategy has been designed to aid in the delivery of high quality programs and services that meet or exceed applicable environmental regulations, while striving to continually improve the Region's environmental performance over time. It provides a framework for incorporating environmental considerations into the Region's decision making and outlines a process for establishing targets in all program areas which have a significant impact on the environment.

One of the key goals of the environmental strategy is to establish a means to provide ongoing progress reporting on key progress indicators as they relate to the five priority outcome areas identified in the Environmental Sustainability Framework. The goal of this website is to publicly communicate the environmental impact and subsequent improvements of both the Region as an organization and at the community scale.
