Centre for Climate Change Management

Supporting the transition to a thriving low-carbon economy.

The Centre for Climate Change Management (CCCM) is an applied research institute focused on supporting the transition a thriving, low-carbon economy.

Our research focuses on working collaboratively with industry, government and community to develop and implement climate change solutions. Given the urgency of the climate crisis, we focus on "deep mitigation" strategies: opportunities to significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change.

The CCCM also acts as a hub for climate action on campus and in the Hamilton-Burlington community. We have a "coalitions-in-residence program" for collective action initiatives such as the Bay Area Climate Change Council and the centre is home to the college's Sustainability Office.

Our Approach

We focus on creating lasting solutions to some of our toughest climate change problems. We vet new projects and partnerships using the following criteria:

  • Does this project have the potential to significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change?
  • Are our industry/clean tech SME/community/government partners committed to finding and implementing the solutions we co-develop?
  • Will this project make the communities we serve more resilient and respect the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada?
  • Will the solutions we find be transferable to other communities across Canada and around the globe?
