Mohawk unveils new climate change centre

December 20, 2017

Mohawk College has formally unveiled its Centre for Climate Change Management, which aims to help accelerate the region’s transition to a low-carbon economy. The $1.9M centre is the result of a partnership between Mohawk, the province of Ontario, and the cities of Hamilton and Burlington. The centre will incorporate industry partnerships with local businesses, a campus carbon management program, the Bay Area Climate Change Coordinating Office, and a campus sustainability office. “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a priority for our college, region, province and country,” said Mohawk President Ron McKerlie. “While it's a big challenge, it offers great opportunities.” Hamilton Spectator
