What WWF is doing

100 per cent renewable future

WWF is putting Canada on the path to 100 per cent renewable energy by 2050. WWF’s Energy Report calls for increased investment in the world’s renewable energy potential. It proposes changing the way we move people and goods – like investing in better transit, building walkable and bike-able cities and switching to electric vehicles. It asks us to hold governments accountable to commitments such as ending federal subsidies for oil, coal and gas.

Renewable Energy Mapping

To help the shift to renewable energy, WWF has teamed up with researchers at the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy. Together we’ve launched a project to map renewable energy potential across the country. Our goal is to put together Canada’s Renewable Energy Map with hard data that shows just how much accessible, reliable sources of renewable energy Canada can tap.

Driving an Energy Revolution

With transportation a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, WWF is promoting the use of electric vehicles. WWF-Canada’s target is to see 600,000 electric vehicles (EVs) on the road by 2020.

Climate Smart Planning and Adaptation

WWF is working with communities on climate-smart ways to reduce and adapt to the coming impacts of climate change. We’re helping provide knowledge for communities to adapt to a warming world; combining climate change predictions, detailed ice data and wildlife information to help plan for a different future. In British Columbia’s Skeena region, we helped communities develop strategies to manage their local resources in the face of changing temperatures and rainfall.
