Speaker: Elizabeth Sheehan, President, Climate Smart
With the imminent introduction of a carbon tax, there’s never been greater incentive for Manitoba businesses to strategically reduce environmental footprints. Climate Smart – a Vancouver-based social enterprise – has a decade long track record of helping more than 800 businesses (including local governments, financial institutions, ports and airports) profitably track and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 11 per cent within two years.
Climate Smart’s President Elizabeth Sheehan shares stories and case studies to help you reduce emissions, strengthen bottom lines and build a resilient economy.
