About eMERGE Guelph Sustainability

eMERGE Guelph Sustainability fights climate change to build a healthier society. It does this by helping people reduce energy and water use through its education and awareness programs and the free Home Tune-Up. eMERGE promotes and supports sustainable behaviour for individuals while working on a larger scale to implement green policies.


Promoting smart behaviour, policy and improved efficiency helps Guelph build a road map to achieve 100% renewable energy long before 2050. This has the added benefit of a healthier community and a more resilient local economy.
