Metro Vancouver Sustainability Community Breakfast

Reducing Carbon Makes Dollars and Sense

The next Metro Vancouver Sustainability Community Breakfast will take place Thursday, January 24, 2013 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) downtown Vancouver campus at 555 Seymour Street, Vancouver.

Small and medium-sized businesses can play an important role in fighting climate change, while keeping costs down. Since 2010, Metro Vancouver has co-funded over 300 businesses to take a Climate Smart training program that helped them explore options to reduce their carbon footprint. Join us as we showcase three businesses who have come through this program – they will share stories about how reducing greenhouse gas emissions has helped their bottom line.

Welcoming Remarks:

  • Heather Deal, Chair, Environment and Parks Committee; Councillor, City of Vancouver

Speakers:

  • Elizabeth Sheehan, President, Climate Smart
  • Jonathan Meads, Sustainability Manager, Concert Properties
  • Nigel Bullers, Senior Vice President, Securiguard Services Ltd.
  • Morten Schroder, Vice President Operations, BC, Van Houtte Coffee Services

    Can’t make it in person? Tune into the live stream here at 7:30 a.m. on January 24th!
