In response to interest from more than a dozen communities across Ontario in replicating the impact of the RCI, SWR launched a new national non-profit called Sustainability CoLab on January 16, 2014. CoLab is creating a provincial network of communities each building their own local sustainability networks to support businesses in setting and achieving sustainability goals, with a particular focus on reducing carbon emissions. By collaborating, sharing best practices, and coordinating efforts, the CoLab Network seeks to shift how businesses operate to make sustainability the norm. SWR is an Affiliate Member of Sustainability CoLab. Other CoLab members include Durham Sustain Ability (Durham Region), EnviroCentre (Ottawa), Niagara Sustainability Initiative (Niagara Region), and Sustainable Kingston.
