Hub Declaration


That the city of Montréal and its citizens lead by example and undertake concrete, ambitious and feasible measures to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and attain carbon neutrality* by 2042, the 400th anniversary of the city.

By initiating the transition towards clean energy and a low-carbon economy, we will do our part to stem impacts of climate change while improving the health and well-being of citizens present and future, and make Montréal a model of innovative and creative solutions in Québec and around the world.


In the service of this objective, we propose that Montreal:

  1. Adopt a rigorous, ambitious, and systematic carbon budget that aligns with the best science and aims for a rapid decarbonization of the economy.
  2. Optimise data collection and render it available to the public to allow a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory each year, allowing us to effectively measure progress towards our reduction target.
  3. Apply each project proposed in Montréal’s jurisdiction to a “climate test” by evaluating the GHG emissions for its entire life cycle, even those emitted off-island.
  4. Ensure public participation in the planning and implementation of the energy transition, and allocate necessary resources to do so. 

*According to the carbon-neutral cities alliance, carbon neutrality corresponds to a reduction of at least 80% of emissions from 1990 levels by 2050
