City of Greater Sudbury admits it is not on track to meet its ambitious carbon neutrality goals by 2050.

In the very first annual update of the City's net zero emissions plan since its adoption, we note an improvement in the City's electricity use thanks in particular to logistical changes such as the use of lamps energy-efficient streets and the electrification of public transport.

In addition, the report highlights an increase in the use of liquid fuels, as gasoline and diesel.

The report also indicates that natural gas consumption has declined irregularly since 2016, due in particular to the increase in travel needs for several services, including emergencies.
