The Last 10 Years


In April 2000, under Mayor Mel Lastman, City Council adopted the megacity’s first-ever environmental plan called Clean, Green and Healthy: A Plan for an Environmentally Sustainable Toronto. The environmental plan set the direction for action in a host of areas including:

  • Pollution reduction
    Waste diversion
    Sustainable transportation
    Sustainable energy
    Green economic development
    Education and awareness

So began 10 years of City Hall building a green city, work that started with Mayor Lastman and continues today under the leadership of Mayor Miller.

Today, many of the ideas first mentioned in Clean, Green and Healthy are being realized:

These and many other policies make for healthier communities and businesses. This is happening because Torontonians and three successive City Councils have believed environmental solutions are a priority.
