Reep Green Solutions


   About the Position

Impact Statement
ClimateActionWR is a collaboration between local organizations and community members focused on climate change mitigation, and is led by Sustainable Waterloo Region and Reep Green Solutions. It coordinates the activities of Waterloo Region's community Climate Action Plan – to achieve our community's current greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target of 6% below 2010 levels by 2020, and long-term target of 80% GHG reduction by 2050.

Description
The application process for our 2022 Sector Committees is officially underway!
Every year, ClimateActionWR recruits subject matter experts and passionate community members to join one of our three committees, which relate to one of the three largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting emitting sectors within Waterloo Region:
• Transportation Sector Committee
• Workplaces Sector Committee
• Residential Sector Committee

Sector committees take a ‘birds-eye’ view of their sector, being aware of initiatives related to climate change mitigation within the boundaries of Waterloo Region. They take on projects and initiatives related to their sector, to accelerate progress toward achieving our community’s GHG reduction targets: 50% GHG reduction by 2030, and an 80% GHG reduction by 2050. Sector committee projects are aligned with the actions outlined in our community climate action strategy, TransformWR.
