Whitby Green Standard



On This Page


The Whitby Green Standard is a toolkit that has been developed to help encourage and enhance sustainable new development across the Town. The Whitby Green Standard will help ensure new developments in the Town are constructed with sustainability in mind and identifies ways in which developers can go above and beyond to exceed these criteria. 

This program will help meet the Town’s goal of being a healthy, sustainable, and complete community – with balanced residential and employment growth and high quality of life. The Whitby Green Standard is also a response to the Town’s greenhouse gas reduction target of 80% by the year 2050.


Get Involved

The Whitby Green Standard continues to evolve and the next steps is to create an incentive program to support the implementation of the voluntary tiers 2-4. In order to stay current on these changes and have your say signup to the Whitby green Standard interested parties list through Connect Whitby.
