What is ICECAP and why should I participate?

Posted on Friday July 31, 2020

The “Integrated Community Energy & Climate Action Plans” (ICECAP) project is a partnership of area municipalities and First Nations to understand their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, set targets to reduce them, and implement plans for action – thereby saving themselves and their resident’s money.

Working with the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, the ICECAP partnership is a unique regional model that provides support that area councils and communities need to progress toward a new energy future that produces fewer GHG emissions.

But we need your help! Municipalities have done their part and benchmarked their own GHG emissions. Now a new carbon calculator has been developed as an educational tool, and as a method for collecting data for the ICECAP partnership for our area and communities as a whole.

Data will be used in the following ways:
- Monitor local energy and GHG emission trends in our area and communities.
- Develop energy and GHG emission baselines for our area and communities.
- Contribute to the development of local climate action and regional energy plans.
- Identify opportunities for energy efficiency, reducing GHG emissions, and saving money on energy in our area and communities.
