EVENT DESCRIPTION

People, Planet, Profits: A Corporate Primer to Sustainability

Sustainability isn't just important for people and the planet, but also is vital for business success. Today’s companies are expected to have a positive impact on the social and environmental wellbeing of the community and planet. Business as usual is no longer an option. Companies must adapt to the rapidly changing social expectations and emerging, often disruptive, technologies. This presentation will explore how innovation can create solutions to climate change challenges and provide opportunities to monetize and scale those solutions. We’ll look at how the Alberta Council of Technologies (ABCTech) is growing the innovation ecosystem, how Mammoet uses its Sustainovation initiative to turn ideas into real solutions and Edmonton’s Energy Transition Strategy, which includes more than 100 sustainable technologies.
