Air Quality and Energy
Clean air is essential to the health and well-being of all living creatures and their surrounding natural environment. Air quality, however, can be negatively affected by human-caused activities, including vehicle exhaust, heating of homes and buildings, burning of wood, construction dust, industrial processes and energy generation. The Region of Waterloo is committed to doing our part to create a healthy, sustainable environment. Within our influence, this includes managing energy resources while reducing greenhouse gases and other air emissions that result from Regional activities as well as provide leadership to encourage reductions in community emissions.
