About Zerofootprint:
The City of Toronto is partnering with Zerofootprint to launch Zerofootprint Toronto, the first ever community-wide initiative aimed at engaging all citizens to fight climate change on a massive scale.

"Zerofootprint targets large organizations such as collections of cities, multinational corporations, universities, schools and multinational communities, which may span many countries. We enable them with infrastructure that can measure, aggregate, track and manage their individual and combined footprint. We also provide them with the tools to foster a local marketplace with news, events and green commerce."

OCAD wishes to engage our community, both internally and externally, in dialogue and actionable means for waste reduction, recycling and reducing carbon emissions. The university will continue to support and launch a number of initiatives that reflect the concern the OCAD community shares regarding sustainability, and will continue to champion innovation that brings solutions to this important issue.
