The Environmental Strategic Framework identifies the following priority Focus Areas:
Air Quality and Energy: Effectively use and manage energy resources and reduce greenhouse gases and other air emission from Regional activities.
Rural and Urban Land:Manage and shape land use to ensure a liveable, healthy and sustainable Waterloo Region.
Sustainable Culture: Foster stewardship of the natural environment and encourage behaviours to reduce environmental impact.
Water: Protect the quality and quantity of our water resources.
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.
