Sustainable Waterloo Region (SWR) is pleased to announce that Miovision has joined the Regional Sustainability Initiative as an Observing Organization! As a member, Miovision gains access to an extensive member network of organizations that share and learn sustainability best practices.
The Regional Sustainability Initiative fosters the development of the local green economy in the Waterloo Region by supporting organizations, like Miovision, in setting ambitious and realistic sustainability targets. We encourage an overall approach to sustainability, with a focus on carbon, waste and water operations.
Our network helps members improve their understanding of the impact of their operations and gives them access to our program resources. The membership helps build a culture of sustainability among the organization’s employees, and they will learn strategies to engage employees as sustainability advocates that set and achieve realistic sustainability targets.
“As a leading clean-tech company in Waterloo region, we are so thrilled to be working with the amazing team at Miovision”, said Tova Davidson, Executive Director of Sustainable Waterloo Region. “They not only offer a product and service that reduces idling associated emissions, they are now turning their focus towards their own operational impact, and we are so happy to be able to support them on this journey! Miovision is also a leader in the tech sector locally, being one of the first tech companies in the region to publicly commit to reducing and reporting their GHG footprint! This is big news for that sector and for our low carbon future!”
Miovision is a respected member of Waterloo Region’s tech sector. The company’s AI-powered traffic management platform helps improve traffic efficiency at the intersection and makes roads safer for all types of road users – drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. Miovision calculates that, by helping cities optimize traffic signal timing and reducing unnecessary vehicle stops, they can help cities reduce GHG emissions by up to 200 tonnes per intersection per year. That’s equivalent to the annual GHG emissions of nearly 44 cars!
Miovision shares many of SWR’s values, especially in regards to efficient transportation solutions within cities, and we are looking forward to working with them.
“Many of our customers use our products to help alleviate the negative impacts of traffic, like congestion, accidents and GHG emissions,” said Matt Fisher, VP, Business Operations and Technology, Miovision. “Now, we’re turning our attention to our own business operations and are excited to work with SWR to understand the best way for Miovision to reduce its environmental footprint.”
We’re excited to welcome an organization that does so much to improve our cities and look forward to learning from each other!
