News from the Niagara Sustainability Initiative
Posted September 21st, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – September 20, 2015 – We’re pleased to announce that Tikvah Mindorff, Executive Director of Niagara Sustainability Initiative, has been honoured as a 2017 member of Canada’s Clean50-Emerging Leader.
Canada’s Clean50 recognizes 50 leaders in sustainable development and clean technology, selected from an initial pool of more than 500 nominees from across Canada. The nominees reflect a wide range of industries; their innovations, programs and strategies are helping to reduce energy and waste and along the way improve Canada’s sustainability record.
Of the applicants, Delta Management Group has selected and named 10 absolutely outstanding younger Canadians as “Emerging Leaders”. In many ways the description is unfair – they are, quite simply, “Leaders”, who in every case have already accomplished a great deal. Many of the “Emerging Leaders” could be full Clean50 Honourees – something Delta Management Group fully expects in the near future.
Here’s what the Canada’s Clean 50 selection committee had to say about Tikvah:
“Tikvah Mindorff was chosen after rigourous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among Honourees selected from an initial pool of over 500 well qualified nominees.”
Tikvah will be amongst approximately 110 past and incoming Clean50 Honourees meeting on Thursday at the “Clean50 Summit 6.0” on Toronto Island, to spend a day amongst peers and colleagues tackling common sustainability challenges.

“I’m honoured to be named alongside other leaders to this year’s Clean50,” said Tikvah Mindorff. “It speaks to the momentum that Niagara Sustainability Initiative has been building here in Niagara around the environment and combatting Climate Change and we look forward to accelerating and expanding that work in the years ahead.”
