The HalifACT community update provides a snapshot of the municipality's ongoing efforts to advance the goals set out in our long-term climate action plan.
Commitment to climate action means continuing to adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change while protecting the natural environment and looking for ways to enhance resiliency through green energy.
HalifACT is already taking action by transitioning to electric buses and fleet vehicles, retrofitting municipal buildings for energy efficiency and investing in emergency preparedness, storm water protection and food security.
