The Government of British Columbia has released its CleanBC plan aimed at reducing climate pollution, while creating more jobs and economic opportunities for people, businesses and communities.
In unveiling the CleanBC plan, Premier Horgan said his government has put priority on:
- reducing climate pollution by shifting homes, vehicles, industry and business off burning fossil fuels and toward greater use of clean B.C. electricity and other renewable energies;
- boosting energy-efficient solutions, like zero-emission vehicles and home heat pumps, by making them more affordable and available for British Columbians; and
- becoming a destination for new investment and industry looking to meet the growing global demand for low-carbon products, services and pollution-reducing technologies.
Our speaker, Neil Dobson, is the Executive Director of Clean Growth at the Climate Action Secretariat with responsibility for the industrial Reporting and Control branch, the economics and analysis team and the CleanBC Program for industry. Neil and his team were heavily involved in the development of CleanBC. Neil has an Economics and Business Management degree, and started his career in the finance industry before following his passion into sport, and working for the next 10 years at a sports marketing and sponsorship management agency. In 2010, having noticed more and more big brands and sports franchises were looking for social and environmental angles to their marketing platforms, he founded Sow Consulting to help these organizations realize the business benefits of sustainability. After moving to BC in 2012, he joined FortisBC to work on its renewable natural gas and energy efficiency and conservation programs.
Join us on February 21st to hear from Neil Dobson on how the CleanBC initiative will impact the construction industry.
