Neighbourhood GHG Emissions Calculator
Welcome to the Community Led Emissions Reduction (CLER) Program
The Manitoba government and 6 not-for-profit community organizations are joining forces to deliver a pilot climate change program in select neighbourhoods. The CLER program is partnering with the following neighbourhoods organizations:
- Brandon City Centre - Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation
- Daniel McIntyre / St Matthews - Daniel McIntyre / St Matthews Community Association
- Lord Roberts - Lord Roberts Community Centre
- Middlechurch in West St Paul - West St Paul School
- Riverview - Riverview Community Centre
- Crestview - St. James-Assiniboia School Division
Each of these neighbourhood organizations will work with residents, businesses and community-based organizations to develop a local climate change action plan. The action plan will identify greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction projects and activities that can be expanded or developed in the community. Program participants will then begin to implement projects in the action plan with the support of the CLER Program.
How to Get Involved
If you live in one of the 6 CLER neighbourhoods, this is a great opportunity for you and your neighbours to reduce GHG emissions in your community so you can:
- save money
- live healthier
- support local economic development
- protect our environment and its resources for future generations
You can start by completing the Neighbourhood GHG Emissions Calculator. The calculator will help you understand how your daily decisions may be contributing to climate change.
By registering with GreenRegisty.org you will be able to measure your personal GHG emissions, save the information and track your progress over time. Your participation will also help influence broader community discussions.
If you want to participate in deciding what projects your community should focus on, watch for opportunities to participate in the action plan discussions in your neighbourhood.
If you're not sure if you live in one of these neighbourhoods, click on the show maps link.
Why should I complete the calculator?
Understanding how our daily decisions produce GHG emissions will help us make choices that will reduce our contribution to climate change.
Reducing GHG emissions can lead to cost savings, improved health and safety, job creation and local economic development.
The community organization participating in your neighbourhood will use your responses to establish how many GHG emissions come from transportation, energy, waste and lawn care choices in your community. This information will help to create the local climate change action plan.
