This is a multi-year capital investment program. The program aims to reduce carbon emissions from Yukon government buildings and assets.
A diverse range of projects
Our Clean Future, Yukon’s strategy for climate change, energy and green economy, outlines:
- the government's 2030 greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target; and
- a broad set of action items to get there.
Highways and Public Works manages the Green Infrastructure Program. The program focuses on meeting GHG reduction targets for public infrastructure owned by the Government of Yukon.
To do that, we are supporting a diverse range of projects:
- clean and renewable energy generation;
- building envelope improvements;
- electrical and mechanical system retrofits;
- efficient building design; and
- performance-based recognition program.
- Biomass district heating systems
- Solar power generation at off-grid buildings
- Renewable energy installations
- Energy retrofit projects
A holistic approach
Our work is guided by a 5-pillar framework.
Projects definitively and substantially reduce GHG emissions.
Success of capital investments depends on the long-term reliability of the supply chain. This includes fuel, equipment, contractors and others involved in supporting the system.
Systems can be operated, maintained and serviced in a predictable and cost-efficient manner.
Value for taxpayer dollars
Proposed projects have established a business case to prove value and to justify cost impacts.
Localized economic benefits
Efforts to reduce GHG emissions result in opportunities for local businesses.
Our vision is to come together as leaders to address climate change. We'll do this by building thriving, resilient communities powered by clean energy and supported by a sustainable green economy.
