Environmental Legacy Fund
In 2010, when the Board approved the Go Green: Climate Change Action Plan, it authorized the creation of an Environmental Legacy Fund (ELF). Income from the sale of carbon credits, electricity produced by solar photovoltaic (PV) projects and hazardous waste is directed into the fund, as are environmental grants.
The fund is used to support high-impact projects related to active transportation, teacher professional learning, urban forest management, school-initiated projects, information technology and energy initiatives. The ELF has been critical to the success of many TDSB sustainability and climate actions.
