Claire Bennett, (former) Manager, Sustainability Office – Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Canada
“REFOCUS helps practitioners think critically about approaches to accelerate sustainability programming within an organization. The model helps practitioners account for many of the “intangibles” that are hard to measure and which ultimately enable or prevent progress.”
Wilfrid Laurier University is recognized as one of Canada’s leading institutions in sustainability. Laurier completed its first AASHE STARS assessment in 2010, achieving Bronze. Its most recent STARS assessment in 2014 achieved Silver.
