Scaling Success – Community Based Carbon Reduction Breakthroughs in B.C.

Webinar
Jun 18 2013 - 9:00am to 11:00am

 

You're invited,

Please join us for an upcoming presentation in our new SIS Project Webinar Series! 

Discussing: How do we successfully diffuse and scale what is working for other contexts into our own?

 

 

Featured Presenter:

 Elizabeth Sheehan, the co-founding champion and now president of Climate Smart Business Inc , is leading an exciting webinar on the evolution and scaling of a unique community based approach to carbon reduction.  Organized as a B-Corp which blends non-profit and private ownership, Climate Smart is a social enterprise focused on engaging small and mid-size businesses to reduce their carbon foot print through energy, waste and transportation efficiencies.  Their story from idea to prototype to piloting their package of services is joined up with a remarkable scaling of their carbon reduction impacts in B.C. Partnerships with municipalities have been an important feature of their approach.

 

Having delivered their 100th training cohort and within reach of their initial 1 million tonnes carbon under management target, Climate Smart is now considering other key issues, including expanding their success into other markets, and structuring partnerships in other jurisdictions.

Discussion will also include carbon reduction efforts up and down supply chains and the realized impacts to the rest of the economy.
