Background of the organization:

The Foundation is joining a partnership between the City of Montreal, C40 Cities and a group of philanthropic partners to make Montreal the first city in North America to be carbon-neutral. C40 is a global network of large cities addressing climate change by developing and implementing policies and programs that generate measurable reductions in both greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks.

 

Grant Description:

This grant will support the Climate Action Plan for Montreal to become carbon-neutral by 2050.  This will include a net-zero carbon building plan, a zero-waste target and a climate action strategy of benefit to all citizens. Activities include modelling, scenario planning, adaptation and mitigation strategies, analyses of existing policies and a phased implementation plan.
