Air and Energy
As an essential component of the City's integrated approach to environmental management, the Environmental Master Plan (EMP) is a long-term action plan to improve environmental performance and achieve tangible environmental outcomes for both the City and the community. The EMP has established nine long-term goals, two of which relate to air and energy.
Goal #1: Manage Air Quality
- Establish baseline of St. Albert’s air quality by 2020.
- Maintain air quality below Level 2 triggers (nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, fine particulate matter and ozone) as outlined in the Capital Region Air Quality Management Framework completed by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.
Goal #2: Reduce Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Achieve 20% reduction of total corporate greenhouse gas emissions from 2008 levels by 2020.
- Achieve 6% reduction of total community greenhouse gas emissions from 2008 levels by 2020.
