About greeniits

In September 2006, a sustainability committee was created in IITS following the launch of the Sustainability Ambassador Program at Concordia. The overall objective of greeniits is to propose and maintain sustainable actions within the IITS department. The main focus of our proposals thus far have been on environmental sustainability. To that end, greeniits has successfully started The mug project, One Sided Paper Project and Electronics Recycling. For our efforts we won an award at the 2007 Sustainable Concordia Gala "For outstanding commitment and initiative towards sustainability". Pretty cool, eh? However, there is so much more todo! If you are looking for ways to help out, please have a look at the hints and tips below, join the mailing list, participate in a challenge, come to our Next Meeting and/ or take a stab at one of the items on the Master TODO list.


New in 2009:  the greeniits fund!
