Members have made a commitment to take action on climate change through active greenhouse gas (GHG) management across their operations. In addition to supporting members in the implementation of their GHG management practices, the City of Edmonton is working with Climate Smart Businesses to help build capacity for lasting change within member organizations.
The program will facilitate members sharing best practices and lessons learned, exploring emerging business opportunities related to the low carbon economy, mentoring newcomers and celebrating success. These will be communicated community-wide, inspiring all Edmontonians to take climate action.
The goals of Edmonton’s Corporate Climate Leaders Program are:
- To encourage, support and empower Edmonton corporations to reduce their GHG emissions and increase their climate resilience
- To promote the collaboration of Edmonton corporations in sharing best practices (re: climate action) and advancing low carbon business opportunities
- To fast-track the transition to a green economy by building industry capacity
- To showcase the climate actions of member corporations as a way of inspiring action on the part of all Edmontonians
