Net-Zero by 2050
In July 2022, Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) validated our greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, making Choice Properties one of the first entities in Canada, and one of just 33 worldwide, to have net-zero targets approved by the SBTi. Our targets are consistent with the primary goal of the Paris Agreement – to limit the rise in global temperature this century to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
