The Sustainable Technologies Evaluation Program (STEP) is a multi-agency program, led by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). The program was developed to provide the data and analytical tools necessary to support broader implementation of sustainable technologies and practices within a Canadian context. Technologies evaluated under STEP are not limited to physical structures; they may also include preventative measures, alternative urban site designs, and innovative practices that help create more sustainable and livable communities.
Main program objectives are to:
- Monitor and evaluate clean water and clean air technologies;
- Develop strategies to overcome implementation barriers;
- Develop supporting tools, guidelines and policies; and,
- Promote broader use of effective technologies through research, education and advocacy.
