About Solution 2030
Solution 2030 works with stakeholders, local governments, indigenous governments and the private sector to assist in developing strategies for organizations to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030. On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development officially came into force. These Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by 128 nations at the United Nations in September 2015 and re-affirmed by world leaders at the Climate Change Conference in Paris December 2016 (COP 21).
These goals were adopted as benchmarks to achieve environmental, economic, social and cultural change required to mitigate the impacts of climate change and to strive for the creation of a more sustainable future for humanity. Today more than ever, we in Canada need to take a lead role, here at home and globally, in developing strategies for implementing these SDGs. Geopolitical shifts and changes brought about by the election of very conservative governments in some parts of the world are creating ideological shifts in belief to the extent of climate change denial and the stripping away of environmental protection in countries such as the United States. These changes require the rest of us to do more than our share for the time being.
Solution 2030 work focuses on specific initiatives with municipalities committed to Green House Gas emission targets to meet Canada’s COP 21 commitments. In many of these communities the GHG emissions are more than 50% from poorly constructed residential buildings. Solution 2030 works with stakeholders to develop viable solutions for green house gas emissions targets through energy efficient retrofits of both single and multi residential properties. Options exist to develop incentive driven programmes, which would appeal to both owners and to tenants.
Solution 2030 works with individual homeowners interested in developing energy efficient solutions to mitigate high-energy costs.
