Mohawk College named one of Canada's Greenest Employers

Mohawk College has been recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers for 2014. The competition, now entering its eighth year, is organized by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. The special designation recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations. Mohawk was recognized for a host of environmental initiatives, from transit passes for students, faculty and staff, preferred parking for carpooling and secured bike storage to the addition of a walking path at the Fennell Campus, new LEED certified buildings, the elimination of bottled water and the introduction of water filling stations, an on-campus community garden and the adoption of an environmental management plan.
