This study utilizes the Theory of Planned Behaviour and the Criteria of Control Model. The research recommends a \three-cornered" approach consisting of Calgary's energy business, local government, and residents. This study calls to engage responsible organizations in becoming agents of change; to educate residents on GHG's; and to bring the public and private sectors together on city resilience using the local government's long-term sustainability plans. There are 22 participating organizations with diverse pro les. Results show that most participants have GHG reduction strategies linked to addressing climate change. A considerable number have an \appetite" for collaboration, but a large percentage remains hesitant for unknown reasons. While the participants support Employee Engagement and Operations Performance, they show less willingness to employ Community Investment.
