Ajax Green Standard - Green Development and Environmental Design


The Ajax Green Standard (AGS) is a tiered municipal green standard that establishes sustainability-related performance measures and design guidelines for new development and redevelopment in the Town of Ajax. The AGS promotes higher building standards and development practices to help prepare, mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as protect and enhance natural features. The AGS is required for all new Site Plan and/or Draft Plan of Subdivision applications submitted on or after May 1, 2022.

The AGS is vital to address the climate change emergency by substantially reducing GHG emissions associated with new buildings in the Town of Ajax.
