Prism gets on board with GLOBE 2016

Prism Engineering was well represented at last month’s GLOBE conference, North America’s largest and most influential sustainable business leadership summit. Our President, Robert Greenwald attended a variety of sessions including the keynote address given by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a speech delivered by Premier Christy Clark. 

“It was illuminating to hear our federal and provincial leaders address climate change and economic growth in the same sentence,” he said of his time at the conference. “One of the most important and exciting takeaways for me was that we’re no longer looking at the environment and the economy as competing issues, but rather a pieces of a larger, more complex problem – a problem that new technology, innovative thinking, and customer engagement are offering solutions to.”

Stefanie Jones, Sustainability Engagement Specialist at Prism Engineering also took part in Globe events. Stefanie facilitated a discussion during the Renewable Energy Challenge workshop hosted by the Vancouver Economic Commission, C40 Climate Leadership Group and Renewable Cities. Of the workshop, Stefanie says, “I was happy to help create a dialogue among people of such diverse backgrounds and expertise about a future based on renewable energy.”

From Prism’s Energy Team, Iram Green attended the Green and Digital Demonstration Program’s Inside the Boardroom session which showcased the joint City of Vancouver and Vancouver Economic Commission program and demonstrated how winning proponents are selected.
