Tower Renewal recognized for leadership towards a greener, fairer future


This week, the Tower Renewal program was recognized as one of 100 solutions “for a greener and fairer future” across the globe.

Cities100 selected 100 city-level initiatives that represent leadership in climate change mitigation and adaptation, while at the same time strengthening local economies, communities and citizens’ health. Both the Tower Renewalprogram as a whole, and the City’s innovative retrofit financing pr‎ograms, Hi-RIS and HELP, received this honour.

To see all 100 initiatives recognized, visit Cities100. Two other City of Toronto initiatives were also recognized and we share our congratulations with them: the Toronto Region Conservation Area’s SNAP Program, and the Climate Risk Assessment and Management Initiative.
