Make a measurable impact on climate change

Climate change continues to be the biggest challenge of our lifetime. Our decisions and actions impact future generations. We will continue to focus on climate action to protect our environment. It is a global priority.

Strategic Direction

  • Use the Mohawk College Climate Action Plan and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) as our guiding frameworks to set and achieve targets to ensure that all our work and business processes include a sustainability and climate change lens.
  • Embed sustainability and climate change curriculum, applied research and capstone projects into programs that will prepare a low-carbon workforce and a transition to a low-carbon economy.
  • Leverage our networks and partners, both locally and nationally, to accelerate our climate action initiatives and lead the transition to a clean economy stemming from the work developed through the Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery.
  • Develop a strategy to integrate Indigenous learning and practices in sustainability and climate change initiatives.

Leadership Outcome

We will be the leader in climate action and sustainability in Canada and beyond, recognized for our exceptional climate action education and research and for the bold targets we continue to set for the college.

Building on Momentum

We have taken significant action to reduce greenhouse gas, and to inspire our students to be the sustainability leaders of tomorrow through curriculum and research, campus and public engagement, purchasing, transportation, energy, buildings and waste.
