OCAD President Sara Diamond and the university’s new Sustainability Task Force wish to invite you to the OCAD launch of the Zerofootprint energy calculator.
Sara Diamond and Ron Dembo, Founder and CEO of Zerofootprint, will be on hand to launch the Zerofootprint Calculator to the OCAD student, faculty and staff community and to speak about the partnership between OCAD and 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 Sustainability Initiative:
OCAD is committed to advancing responsible environmental practices and promoting sustainability both through research and programs, as well as operationally. 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.
