Fossil fuel powered lawn and yard equipment have poorly developed emission treatment systems that contribute to GHG emissions, air pollution, health risks and noise pollution. During this webinar, Mitchell House from City of Ottawa discussed the actions the City has completed thus far in preparation for phasing out the use of gas-powered lawn and yard equipment over time. Carrah Bullock and Mary George spoke to the City of Mississauga’s Green Tools Pilot Project. Juliet Rennick from Clean Air Partnership highlighted some of the efforts and challenges that various municipalities face trying to advance policies to electrify light duty equipment. This webinar also sought input from municipalities that are working on similar initiatives.
