Our Approach

While each is unique and designed with input from the local community, programs in the CoLab Network share four Core Approaches, which mean each program is:

1.  Community-Led 

Programs are developed and led by an organization operating within the community.

2.  Business-Focused 

Programs create a trusted local network of organizations that are supported in setting and achieving sustainability targets.

3.  Self-Sustaining

Businesses and organizations pay fees to participate. Over time, these fees cover program operating costs.

4.  Target-Driven

Programs engage participants to set and achieve sustainability targets and publicly report on progress. GHG reductions must be one option businesses can select.
