For a commitment to 50 by 30 and just transition in Waterloo Region!


Petition text:

The signatories below call on the Region of Waterloo to commit to a 10-year target of 50% greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction below 2010 levels by 2030 ("50by30"), leading the just transition necessary for a more equitable, safe climate future. This target is in line with what the most credible climate science makes clear is required to uphold Canada's national commitments in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, and to secure a livable climate future for people today as well as generations to come. This work must be grounded in justice and undertaken in solidarity with, and prioritizing the needs of, those most impacted by climate change in our community. 

By signing, we also commit to supporting and contributing to this critical just transition to a more equitable, safe climate future.


We acknowledge that 50x30WR is working on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnawbe and Neutral Peoples. We recognize the deep intersections between climate justice and Indigenous rights and justice, with a commitment to doing our part to ensure Indigenous sovereignty and leadership is centred in the fight for a safe climate future.
