Come Out to an Event

We welcome anyone interested in making advancements towards more sustainable operations to attend a Regional Carbon Initiative event. Our events provide the unique networks, direction, and inspiration for building environmental sustainability into an organization’s culture.

What Happens at an Event?

Our educational forums and technical workshops are breakfast events that offer individuals the opportunity to network with others from complementary firms and sectors, and to learn from subject-matter experts. The Sustainable Waterloo Region team is available at every event to answer questions about the Regional Carbon Initiative, our services, and how we help organizations move toward sustainable operations.
Event topics are focused on helping organizations implement cost-effective greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction projects. And each event includes a question and answer period, where ideas are discussed with the speakers and other attendees

Types of Events

Our two main types of events are educational forums and technical workshops:

  • Educational Forums: Provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from subject-matter experts and their peers about successful case studies and motivating stories, in order to learn cost-effective best practices with respect to reducing GHG emissions.
