The Town of Caledon prides itself on maintaining a balance of community, environmental and development initiatives in the setting of an extensive urban and rural environment.
The Town has taken a progressive approach to "green" leadership, working to preserve Caledon's natural beauty through sustainable lifestyles and development.
The Town is actively working to live up to its title as "The Greenest Town in Ontario," an award granted by TVO in recognition of its environmental leadership.
In 2005, Council adopted the Town's first formal environmental strategy with the Environment Progress Action Plan - a plan of initiatives for the Town to enhance its commitment to preserving Caledon's environment.
The action plan has led to a series of three reports, in 2007, 2009 and 2011.
The plan highlights seven priority areas:
- Air Quality
- Climate Change
- A Green Economy
- Environmental Awareness
- Sustainable Planning and
- Community Capacity
The third report, the 2011 Environmental Action Report highlights significant progress in the target areas and outlines next steps towards continued sustainability.
