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:
- how to expand their success into other markets
- how to structure partnerships in other jurisdiction
- financing options
- how new knowledge gained as a result of market development can positively impact carbon reduction efforts up and down supply chains and the realized impacts to the rest of the economy
Date and Time: June 18th, 9:00- 11:00AM Pacific Time
