A program of Windfall Ecology Centre, ClimateWise is a network of leading businesses and institutions operating in and around York Region Ontario who are setting and achieving sustainability goals.
Network members are supported with training, a cloud-based carbon accounting platform, expert plan review, and a comprehensive event season focused on connecting members with the expertise and collaborative learning opportunities necessary to move their organisations toward more sustainable operations.
The ClimateWise event season culminates in a gala evening of recognition to acknowledge the accomplishments of our members.
Successful and proven program
Inspired by the highly successful Sustainable Waterloo Region program, which has been operating since 2009, Windfall Centre established the ClimateWise Business Network in partnership with Sustainability CoLab. Windfall Ecology Centre is one of eight members in the CoLab Network that have launched or are working to launch a target-based sustainability program for businesses in their community.
Proving the business-case for sustainability
Together, with our business and institutional members, their employees, and supporting partners, ClimateWise builds the business-case for sustainability by demonstrating how reducing emissions can improve the bottom line, mitigate business risks, help develop a credible brand, and improve the ability to attract and retain consumers, shareholders, and top tier employees.
ClimateWise Business Network is one of 8 social enterprises across Ontario convening networks of businesses setting sustainability targets with the support of Sustainability CoLab. Together we're demonstrating that a more sustainable economy is possible.
