THE DRAWDOWN APPROACH
to climate action

The Drawdown approach changes the conversation by focusing on solutions rather than problems. Reducing emissions is an opportunity rather than a burden. It is a chance to build a strong, clean and modern city with a vibrant economy fit for the 21st century, supporting a better, healthier and more prosperous society for all. The time is ripe for bringing this perspective to Toronto.

Let’s focus on solutions.

Drawdown
is that point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begins to decline on a year-to-year basis.

A green and just recovery

Drawdown Toronto supports ideas to move forward on a green and just recovery. We embrace local and national plans to move beyond business as usual to create a more prosperous, fair and liveable society for all people. This is our opportunity to set a course for a better future.
