Leduc is committed to environmental stewardship for another 10 years

Tuesday, March 12, 2024

The City of Leduc Environmental Plan was approved on March 11 and will guide the City’s environmental actions for the next 10 years. The environmental plan addresses key focus areas: waste, water, land, climate change and energy, and ambient impacts. 

“We want to protect our natural environment and build a resilient, sustainable future for all citizens of Leduc,” says City of Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “The environment plan is our commitment. Planning for the future starts today if we want to create a legacy of environmental responsibility that will endure for generations.” 

The plan aims to be reasonable, measurable, and meaningful, and builds on key elements of the City’s previous environmental plan. It reflects the values outlined in the City’s 2023-2026 Strategic Plan and incorporates best practices and community feedback. 

The plan has 40 action items to support the city in being a leader in environmental sustainability and stewardship.  

Community feedback was collected during the development of the plan and indicated residents want the City to preserve and enhance environmentally significant areas, focus on waste diversion, water conversation and renewable energy.
