    Fossil Free Plan Webinar

    Hoping to be informed about what's progressed since the last time this plan was spotlighted? Do you have comments about aspects of the plan? Are you simply curious about pathways towards a fossil free city?

    On Wednesday, April 24th, join us for a quick webinar on EH's Community Fossil Free Plan. You may register here. We hope you'll join us.

    The Community Fossil Free Plan (CFFP) was envisioned via Friday's for Future Hamilton students with Ward 3's office championing them. Over summer 2022, Environment Hamilton staff entered and provided support for the plan to develop into a full policy paper that was presented to City Council and other collaborators around Hamilton. It boasts six transformations:

    • abandoned oil well stewardship,
    • sustainable rental building cooling,
    • prioritizing geothermal energy,
    • green bonds,
    • pipeline taxation, and finally,
    • making pipeline information public

    For more information on the CFFP, check out this page.
