We work together to take concrete and effective action.

  • Encourage clients and partners to develop and strengthen lasting cross-border partnerships through Innovate Canada events
  • Partner with our host destination, Waterloo region, for a sustainable carbon neutral event and encourage our other partners in their own future events and efforts.
  • Encourage partner municipalities to take targeted action toward meeting the SDGs. For instance, the City of Waterloo has developed an SDG video series to educate on the SDGs and the actions the City is taking to contribute
  • Destination Canada has developed the Canadian Business Events Sustainability Plan, a national program aimed at improving the economic, social, and environmental sustainability practices of business events hosted in Canada.
