Sustainability

The Inglewood Community League officially formed its sustainability committee in January 2019. Our aim is to improve our Community Leagues energy efficiency, offset our carbon emissions through on-site renewable energy, as well as reduce our community’s overall environmental footprint through outreach, education, and working together.

Right now the country, province, and our City of Edmonton have outlined initiatives to mitigate the effects of climate change through the reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and to transition our energy system into one that is more efficient and sustainable. Some of our members have recently attended the Energy 101 workshops through the EFLC Green Leagues program, and are now part of the Green Leagues Ambassadors Network. These workshops provide education and resources to help community leagues take advantage of the opportunities and funding now available to increase their efficiency, lower recurring utility costs through equipment upgrades, install solar PV (photovoltaic) systems, and decrease their overall environmental impact. There is a growing number of leagues in the city already pursuing or completely finished an energy efficiency upgrade and solar energy installation, and now it’s our turn to do our part. Enter the creation of our new Inglewood Sustainability Committee!
