Municipal Climate Lens Tool

2023 – Clean Air Partnership, Ontario Municipalities.

The Municipal Climate Lens Tool was developed by Clean Air Partnership in conjunction with Ontario municipalities. It is designed to provide a preliminary, qualitative understanding of whether a municipal decision will affect climate (through the production of greenhouse gases) or be affected by climate (through increased exposure to temperature or precipitation). The Tool is designed to be used by all staff in a municipality. It is designed to be broadly applicable to any decision. Municipalities must decide the scope of decisions it should be applied to and how to enforce its use.

This is a web-based survey tool that is free to use and should take no more than 3 minutes to complete. The tool examines how a decision could produce scope 1 and 2 emissions, and how it could be affected by extreme temperature and precipitation.
