Sustainable Kingston's Green Economy program supports and recognizes organizations that are accelerating the shift to a low carbon economy.

With guidance and tools from the program, members of the network are leading by example by measuring, reducing, and setting targets on their carbon footprints.



How it works

The program is run under a membership model. Members gain access to a suite of resources that help them advance sustainability within their organization. 

  • Carbon Footprint Services*

  • Annual Sustainability Reports

  • Sustainability Recognition

  • Access to a Database of Sustainability Projects

  • Access to Seminars & Workshops

Working directly with program staff, our members are able to move sustainability from an idea into implementation within their organization.

*Metrics included in the carbon footprints vary among members. All include electricity and natural gas consumption at a minimum, and many members also track the use (and associated carbon emissions) of elements such as water, landfill waste, recycling, compost, and fuel use by fleet vehicles.  All analyses are in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard as published by the World Resources Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
