SCDSB Honoured for Environmental Efforts

September 4, 2003 - Ray Vincent, Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District Board, (second from left) presents Mark Gervais, Energy Coordinator for the SCDSB, (second from right) with a special plaque on behalf of the Honourable Herb Dhaliwal, Minister of Natural Resources. The plaque was presented to the SCDSB in recognition of the Board’s participation in the Office of Energy Efficiency’s Energy Innovator’s Initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

Recognizing the need for energy conservation several years ago, the board embarked upon a program to make their buildings and schools even more energy efficient with the installation of numerous retrofit projects such as water conservation devices, energy audits and the implementation of the Destination Conservation Program. These innovative school-based programs enable students, teachers and school board staff to interact with utility companies to initiate environmental education and conservation activities.

Also on hand for the presentation were Rossella Bagatto, Superintendent of Education and Hugh Lee, Acting Associate Director Corporate Services and Treasurer of the Board for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board.
