Our partners recognize that a sustainable vision of the future means not only a thriving environment but also a thriving economy.

Research and partnerships developed through the Verschuren Centre will bring export opportunities to Cape Breton’s energy and environmental sectors and professional services companies, allowing them to market their expertise internationally.

In addition, the Centre’s contribution to new energy technologies will help new sustainable industries succeed in Cape Breton.

But most importantly, our success depends on these partnerships. Here are some of the the organizations helping the Verschuren Centre to become one of Canada’s most exciting centres for sustainability.
