Buildings in Mississauga are responsible for roughly 50% of greenhouse gas emissions, but we can reduce these emissions through building and site design.
The City of Mississauga’s Green Development Standard (GDS) has been the tool through which the Planning and Building Department promotes environmentally friendly development through the Site Plan process. The GDS is being updated as per action 3.1 in the Climate Change Action Plan.(External link)
Have your say, take the survey & review the metrics
There are two ways to provide your feedback, and you can participate in both: the survey and providing comments on the draft metrics. The survey consists of five parts and is expected to take approximately 15–20 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until October 4, 2023.
