Sustainable Waterloo Region
The P&G CBS is a Founding Partner in Sustainable Waterloo Region (SWR). SWR originated out of research done with support from the Centre, and we provided the initial seed funding.
SWR is a social enterprise that advances the environmental sustainability of organizations across Waterloo Region through collaboration. They are a dedicated, results oriented team focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the Regional Carbon Initiative.
More recent initiatives of SWR include:
ClimateActionWR: Measuring and acting towards reducing community-wide GHG emissions
Sustainability CoLab: Scaling up the SWR model nationally to support similar community-based organizations.
