Wilfrid Laurier University, AET Group Inc., Quarry Integrated Communications Inc., and Farm Mutual Reinsurance Plan Inc. (FMRP) are helping Waterloo Region transition towards an environmentally sustainable economy through their greenhouse gas reduction commitments.

The businesses have offered their commitment to the sustainable Waterloo Region flagship program, the Regional Caron Initiative (RCI).

These four organizations are the first to convert their membership to Pledging Partners, taking the next step to commit to a public greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target.

This newly acquired status as a Pledging Partner will see these organizations work within a community-developed framework to reduce between 20 and 40 percent of GHG emissions over the next 10 years.
