WATERLOO REGION, ON, April 18, 2013 /CNW/ – Sustainable Waterloo
Region’s 2012 Report reveals that members of its flagship program, the
Regional Carbon Initiative (RCI), are making a strong, positive impact
in reducing the region’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Over the last year, the RCI experienced dynamic growth in both the total
number of members and the concrete commitments member organizations are
making to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. To date, RCI members
committed to reduce 45,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions – the
equivalent of taking 10,000 cars off Waterloo Region roads. This growth
is a part of the expanding sustainability network in Waterloo Region.
