WHEREAS, we are seeing the impact of climate change daily on Canadian cities and towns; 

WHEREAS, Canadian cities want to do their share of addressing the climate emergency

WHEREAS, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) most recent report indicates that global warming and the melting of the arctic ice caps are happening at a faster rate than previously anticipated; and

WHEREAS, the IPCC report also calls upon global nations to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, a goal set forth in the Paris Agreement; and

WHEREAS, science-based targets indicate that cities globally need to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and halve global emissions by 2030; and

WHEREAS, The Race to Zero is a global campaign - led by the UN High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action, Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz - to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, and investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth ahead of COP26 in November  2021.

WHEREAS, Cities Race to Zero is a campaign for cities by cities to inspire commitments and action from their peers around the world and channel the best available tools and expertise to help them stay on track with the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement. The objective of Cities Race to Zero is to recruit 1,000 cities to the Race to Zero by COP26. 

WHEREAS, cities are facing tremendous financial losses in the billions of dollars due to the increased intensity of storms, flooding, drought, wildfires and coastal flooding, linked to rising global temperatures.

WHEREAS, billions of dollars of commercial real estate and business property are at risk due to current and projected rising sea levels and the intensity of storms, droughts, floods and wildfires.

WHEREAS, the objective of Cities Race to Zero is to build momentum around the shift to a decarbonized economy ahead of COP26, where governments must strengthen their contributions to the Paris Agreement. Showing strong city leadership in reaching net zero emissions by 2050 will send governments a resounding signal that cities are united in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement and creating a more inclusive and resilient economy.

WHEREAS, on June 6, 2019 Brampton Council officially declared a Climate Emergency for the purpose of aiming, framing, and deepening the City of Brampton’s commitment to the protection of our ecosystems and community from climate change;

WHEREAS,  in September 2020, Brampton Council unanimously endorsed ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets of 30% reduction from 2016 levels by 2030, 50% reduction from 2016 levels by 2040, and to establish a pathway to reduce emissions by at least 80% by 2050.
WHEREAS, the City of Brampton committed staff resources and capital funding towards the immediate development and implementation of the Community Energy and Emissions Reduction Plan’s six priority projects, which include:

• Ensuring the City of Brampton policies and programs align with supporting the CEERP Objectives and Targets;
• Establishing a system to deliver standardized retrofits to Brampton homeowners;
• Updating the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) that prioritizes safer, healthier and more environmentally efficient movement of people which also reflects complete streets and the integrated nature of mobility and built form;
• Integrating District Energy Systems in appropriate locations within  Brampton;
• Developing Integrated Energy Master Plans for public facilities and private development; and
• Establishing a community organization to lead the development and implementation of select priority projects.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that The City of Brampton declares support for the Cities Race to Zero as part of the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign by joining hundreds of others cities in fighting climate change through the Cities Race to Zero campaign;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City of Brampton pledges to the following commitments: 

1. Publicly endorse the following principles:

● We recognise the global climate emergency. 
● We are committed to keeping global heating below the 1.5°Celsius goal of the Paris Agreement.
● We are committed to putting inclusive climate action at the centre of all urban decision-making, to create thriving and equitable communities for everyone. 
● We invite our partners – political leaders, CEOs, trade unions, investors, and civil society – to join us in recognising the global climate emergency and help us deliver on science-based action to overcome it.

2. Pledge to reach (net)-zero in the 2040’s or sooner, or by mid-century at the latest, in line with global efforts to limit warming to 1.5°Celsius. 

3. In advance of COP26, explain what steps will be taken toward achieving net zero, especially in the short- to medium-term. Set an interim target to achieve in the next decade, which reflects a fair share of the 50% global reduction in CO2 by 2030 identified in the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°Celsius.

4. Immediately proceed to planning at least one inclusive and equitable climate action as listed on www.citiesracetozero.org that will help to place your city on a resilient pathway consistent with the 1.5°Celsius objective of the Paris Agreement and begin implementation no later than 2022.

5. Report progress annually, beginning no later than 2022 to your usual or the recommended reporting platform. 

Note: In accordance with the Procedure By-law and Council Resolution, the Referred Matters List will be published quarterly on a meeting agenda for reference and consideration. A copy of the current Referred Matters List for Council and its committees, including original and updated reporting dates, is publicly available on the City’s website.
