CRD Material Flow Analysis
Earlier this year, SUMMIT72 worked with Dillon Consulting and Metabolic on a project to identify circular economy opportunities for the construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) sectors.
Through data gathering and analytical support, we contributed to the development of practical solutions that can help reduce waste, increase resource efficiency, and drive economic growth.
SUMMIT72 is proud to have been a part of this important project that will help to pave the way for a more sustainable and resilient future for the CRD sectors.

Harvest Sky Agricultural Center Economic Impact Assessment
SUMMIT72 is pleased to announce the completion of an economic impact assessment for the proposed Harvest Sky Agricultural Center. The Agricultural Center is expected to create jobs and stimulate economic growth in the region. This will not only benefit the local economy, but also provide opportunities for businesses and individuals within the community.
In addition to the direct and indirect economic benefits, the agricultural center is also expected to support the development of new technologies and practices in the agricultural industry, which will drive further innovation and growth.
We believe that this project will bring significant value to the Harvest Sky Region, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the community.

Economic Impact of Agriculture in Ontario's Greenbelt Region
SUMMIT72 has completed a significant economic impact assessment of the agricultural sector in Ontario's Greenbelt Region. One of the key findings of the study is that the Greenbelt's agri-food sector generated an estimated $4.1 billion in GDP and almost 59,000 jobs in 2020. These numbers demonstrate the significant economic contributions of the agricultural sector in the Greenbelt, and highlight the importance of this industry to the region's economy.
The study also identified a number of opportunities for growth and expansion in the Greenbelt's agricultural sector. This includes the potential for increased production and sale of local food, as well as the development of new technologies and practices that can support sustainable and resilient agriculture. Overall, the economic impact assessment provides valuable insights into the contributions and potential of the Greenbelt's agricultural sector, and will help to inform future decisions and strategies within the region.
