February is upon us and with the grip of the winter comes the exhilaration of so many things happening here at Sustainable Waterloo Region.

The big news from January was the launch of Sustainability CoLab, the network created to share the Regional Carbon Initiative model, initially with communities across Ontario.

For those businesses that manage a fleet, our February Educational Forum On the Road to Sustainability was made for you! Sign up to learn more. And in the spirit more efficient transportation and reducing the number of cars on the road, Carpool Week is being held February 24th to 28th!

We are all looking forward to the Evening of Recognition, which is quickly approaching on April 24th. Registration opens February 24th.

Finally, as mentioned in my first SWR blog, I want to thank everyone for the very warm welcome to this incredible organization. I am thrilled to be here and look forward to what the future has in store for us all.

Read on for more information on these and other updates from our team.
