Vancouver Economic Commission invites you to join a group of False Creek Flats businesses that are cutting costs by cutting carbon.
As part of Vancouver’s Greenest City Action Plan, the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) is supporting the shift to a greener, more innovative and more economically sustainable future for the False Creek Flats. Businesses operating in the Flats will be key partners in leading this shift.
The VEC is inviting businesses in the Flats to participate in the Climate Smart program: helping businesses to improve their energy, water and waste footprints while reducing associated costs. The Climate Smart program consists of small group training sessions, expert one-on-one advising, and customized reporting and analysis on emissions and cost savings.
This partnership between Climate Smart and the Vancouver Economic Commission will also contribute to
- Developing a Flats Fund for supporting innovative green business in the area
- Identifying opportunities to demonstrate local clean technologies
- Outlining possible policy directions for helping businesses transition to more sustainable business models
- Educating fellow industrial business owners on the opportunities associated with “going green”
