Carleton Sustainability Efforts Recognized with Carbon 613 Award

Carleton University was recently recognized by Ottawa’s Sustainable Business Network—known as Carbon 613—with an excellence award for its sustainability efforts.

The Emerging Excellence Award particularly recognized Carleton’s carbon-based program which has accomplished a 35-per-cent reduction in carbon emissions since 2005, its zero waste programs, and the level of high student engagement in its overall sustainability efforts.

Carbon 613 is a network of Ottawa businesses committed to working toward a net-zero region by 2050.
