CCET Receives a Clean50 Top Project Award 2024

Brampton | October 3, 2023
The Centre for Community Energy Transformation (CCET) is pleased to be recognized as a recipient of Canada’s Clean50 Top Project Award for 2024.

The Clean50 Award Program was founded in 2011 by Delta Management, one of Canada’s leading ESG and cleantech focused search firms. The awards were created to help bridge organizational and institutional siloes acting as barriers to the fundamental changes required to address climate change and help Canada achieve its greenhouse reduction targets. The awards recognize individuals, emerging leaders and top projects selected by third party advisors based on contributions made and measurable Canadian impact.

Since 2021, City of Brampton, Region of Peel, City of Mississauga, Town of Caledon and Sheridan College have worked collaboratively to define CCET as a not-for-profit organization to address greenhouse gas reductions at the municipal level. An Advisory Task Force, consisting of community champions, was established to provide strategic guidance and help transition CCET from a conceptual framework to an established not-for-profit.

“A 2024 Clean50 Top Project recognizes the innovative effort of two levels of government –  the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon together with the Region of Peel – to establish CCET as a not-for-profit with a clear mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the community. We embrace the challenge to transition our communities to a low-carbon future together with our partners in government, residents and businesses.”

Peter Love, CCET Board Chair

The Clean50 Top Projects annually recognize those projects completed in the prior two years based on their innovation, their ability to inform, and inspire other Canadians.   The Top Project is then selected each year at the Clean50 Summit, from votes cast by both incoming and Alumni members of the Clean50.

“I look forward to working with the CCET Board, our municipal collaborators and other partners to scale up climate action in the community and fulfill the vision set out by the residents working with the Advisory Task Force. Our focus on accelerating home energy retrofits and district energy solutions will create jobs, invest in the local economy, and achieve carbon reduction targets set out by our municipal partners.”

Tony Iacobelli, CCET Executive Director

The Clean50 Summit offers Honourees a unique opportunity to engage with other sustainability leaders from all sectors of Canadian life in a unique setting in Toronto where they participate in work groups designed to foster cross sectoral learning, collaboration, and engagementThis year’s summit was held on September 28th.
