The Environment and Climate Change

Climate change is a reality and engineers are critical to alleviating its effects

Ontario Society of Professional Engineers - Environment and Climate Change

About

Climate change is a reality and engineers play a critical role in alleviating its effects on the environment and society as a whole. OSPE supports the Ontario government's efforts to develop a Climate Change Strategy.

Our Goal

Ontario needs to implement a comprehensive range of carbon emission reduction policies and programs that span all ministries and agencies and in cooperation with other levels of government. Moving towards a low-carbon economy will create opportunities and enhance, rather than diminish, Ontario’s prosperity.

Our Work

OSPE is preparing a series of reports that provide input on Ontario's Climate Change Strategy. Issues include cap-and-trade, transportation, green buildings, and underground infrastructure. In 2015 OSPE presented a submission to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.
