GreenNexxus has developed sustainability focused campaigns for a number of forward thinking organizations, including:

  • The award winning CBC and Cisco Systems One Million Acts of Green campaign where Canadians committed more than 1.8 Million acts of green in less than eight months, and an additional 2 Million acts of green in the U.S. and South Korea in subsequent months, for a total of more than 4 Million Acts of Green to date.
  • Rotary International Start with Water initiative. It is an honour to develop the web-based resource that will help the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action group help millions of people access clean water around the world.

The GreenNexxus cornerstone feature is the peer reviewed, unique action based acts of good calculator that allows individuals and organizations to determine their carbon footprint reduction. These measurable results give individuals and organizations the ability to ‘visualize’ the difference they are making through their actions.

Our Three Pillars to Success
GreenNexxus develops Sustainability Engagement Systems (SES) that help campuses, communities and corporations engage their students, employees and citizens to learn about and share their acts of green, kindness and wellness.

Improving the environmental and social performance of your campus helps reduce operating costs, attract students and raise your profile with stakeholders. The GreenNexxus Community Sustainability Engagement System (SES) helps your students, faculty and staff engage and contribute towards your sustainability journey.

Improving corporate sustainability performance is critical. Reducing your environmental impact and helping improve employees’ wellness are proven business growth strategies. The GreenNexxus Corporate Sustainability Engagement System (SES) helps your most important asset, your employees, engage and contribute towards your sustainability journey.

Improving the quality of life in a municipality inherently includes a focus on the local environmental, wellness, community engagement and economic development.
