Environmental Responsibility

We all know that climate change poses a significant threat to the planet. As a coastal city, Saint John is particularly vulnerable, as evidenced by unpredictable weather, historic flooding, and rising sea levels. It is the responsibility of everyone—residents, officials, and government—to make every effort to live more sustainably, to minimize our environmental footprint, and use resources responsibly.

Over the years, the City of Saint John has taken action to address our demands on energy infrastructure, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and support sustainability efforts. Through active transportation, waste reduction, transit expansion, green infrastructure, and care of our green spaces, we are improving quality of life, and lowering our impact on the environment that sustains us all.
