Mohawk College has been a proud leader in sustainability since 2011 when the college became the first in Ontario to adopt a comprehensive environmental management plan. Through our ongoing efforts to decarbonize our buildings and fleet vehicles, we have already reduced these greenhouse gasses by over 70% from 2007 levels. 

The College’s new Climate Action Plan builds on these foundational successes and sets an ambitious new target to achieve net zero carbon in direct operations by 2035.  It also outlines the targets we will reach by 2030 to progress towards our 2035 goal and help lead our students, community and beyond to a net zero future.

Today, Mohawk's Sustainability programs and services are dedicated to increasing the sustainability of Mohawk’s campuses and making it easier for students and staff to incorporate sustainability into daily life. 

In recognition of its leadership in sustainability, Mohawk has been named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers 10 years in a row and was the first college in Ontario to receive a STARS Gold rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
