Why: With the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in Canada coming from the energy and transportation sectors, businesses are demonstrating that there is a business case for sustainability. Carbon 613 provides businesses with concrete tools and knowledge to track and reduce their emissions.
EnviroCentre’s Carbon 613 is one of eight social enterprises across Ontario that are convening networks of businesses setting sustainability targets with the support of Sustainability CoLab. The program model originated in Sustainable Waterloo Region with the Regional Carbon Initiative, which has engaged almost 15% of Waterloo Region’s workforce in setting GHG reduction commitments equivalent to taking 12,000 cars off the road each year.
Inspired by this success, Carbon 613 is dedicated to creating a collaborative network of organizations committed to embedding sustainability into their operations and driving environmental and economic advancement in the National Capital Region.
Together we’re demonstrating that sustainability is in business’ best interest.
