Sector Committees

ClimateActionWR has three sector committees: one dedicated to each of the three highest emitting sectors in our community’s GHG inventory. These committees are Transportation, Workplaces (ICI), and Residential. Committee members are volunteers, composed of community members, local experts, students, and concerned citizens, who act as “connectors” and “catalysts”. Committee members connect groups and individuals to others working on similar projects and catalyze action toward our climate goals.

Each of the three sector committees takes a ‘birds-eye’ view of their sector, being aware of all initiatives related to climate change mitigation within the boundaries of Waterloo Region, in order to identify and accelerate progress toward achieving our community’s GHG reduction target.
