In the newly –published Greenprint for Greater Toronto written by President John Cartwright, the Metro Toronto and York District Labour Council provides a concise and comprehensive overview of what has been done and what needs to be done to answer climate challenges, with specific examples from Toronto. The report recognizes that workplaces contribute significant greenhouse gas emissions, and though there are many examples of dramatic workplace improvements around energy use, waste reduction and green procurement in the workplace, there remains much to do. “The Labour Council is proposing to establish a network of environmental advocates to power the climate change agenda both within workplaces and in society as a whole.” Environmental representatives “would function in much the same manner as health and safety reps do under current Ontario legislation”, and based on existing models in Canada and Britain, could be involved in “waste audits; supply chain reviews; reviews of the movement of materials; identifying ways to re-use excess energy or heat; suggesting improvements around staff commuting.” The Greenprint document was promised, and many of the ideas sketched out, in an earlier Labour Council document: Labour and Climate Change Statement , January 7th, 2016 : The road did not end in Paris, but goes through it.
