Environmental Management provides City-wide leadership and support to manage environmental issues, risks, opportunities and trends associated with the delivery of public services.

We use science-based analysis and cost-effective solutions to manage energy and climate change risks including: severe weather impacts on infrastructure, people and nature; greenhouse gas reductions; and energy management. We also provide expertise in identifying, assessing and managing contaminated City lands to ensure the safety of citizens and workers.

What we heard


You’ve said you rely on The City to ensure that Calgary is resilient to adverse environmental impacts, risks and vulnerabilities. We deliver on this by assessing environmental risks in Calgary's infrastructure, people and the natural environment. Protecting public and environmental well-being consistently rates as one of your highest priorities; you’ve told us that climate change is impacting Calgary and that it may lead to future impacts. Calgary businesses want us to lead and to convene for climate action within our city.

Council direction


A healthy and green city is a Council priority. We continue to be a leader regarding the environment and promoting resilient neighbourhoods. The Council-approved Climate Resilience Strategy and Action Plans directs us to address climate change in a co-ordinated way that resonates with citizen expectations. We’ll support The City to embrace a low carbon economy and implement mitigation and adaption actions to address risks of climate change. We will manage environmental risks to ensure the health of the public and the natural environment, and align ourselves to provincial and federal strategies and focus on the economic benefits to ensure Calgary is a strong, green city for future generations.
