Greening your business: Lessons on clean technology adoption in Atlantic Canada

Online

Environmental sustainability is increasingly important for business viability. This is being driven by a combination of government policies to address climate change, supply chain requirements and investor, customer and employee preferences. Atlantic Canadian businesses need to understand the role that clean technology adoption can play in ensuring the sustainability and competitiveness of their business. This session will feature a panel of speakers, including some businesses that have adopted clean technology. They’ll share what technology they adopted, their motivations for adopting, the benefits of adopting, and lessons learned. APEC’s Fred Bergman will discuss why clean technology is important and some of the statistics on adoption. Lynn Adams, Director of Energy and Environment Policy, ACOA will discuss government supports for clean technology adoption. There will be a short Q&A period following the presentations. This event is free, but registration is required.
