Although it is under-reported, cleantech is the fastest growing industry in Canada. To help draw attention to this fact the David Suzuki Foundation and the Pacific Institute for Climate co-hosted an event in Vancouver on September 18th. This event explored how solutions to environmental challenges are creating economic opportunities.
Canadian leader in the rapidly expanding cleantech economy, Céline Bak, shared her insights on Canada’s advantage in clean technology, and how to build on this momentum towards a clean and prosperous future. Cleantech business leaders joined in a post-presentation discussion and audience-participation question and answer session.
The speakers included Dr. David Suzuki, Dr. Tom Pedersen, Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Céline Bak, Analytica Advisors, Jonathan Rhone, BC Cleantech CEO Alliance, Ross Beaty, Alterra Power Corp. and David Helliwell, Pulse Energy
